I’ll stick with my $20 west marine and walmart pumps for now. The i-sup doesnt get that much use and came with its own pump anyway.
Looks cool (if pump can :roll: ) but missing the $100 price mark by a mile makes it a tough sell

I recently had my pump stolen . Problem is these new pumps they’re creating something more desirable for someone to steal. I’m with sticking to a cheaper pump now.

The HiLo was a huge upgrade from my previous, small pump. While it might be overkill for 7m/9m, it inflates my 12m/15m with ease and makes a multi-kite session a breeze. I still throw my small pump in the car as backup, but always reach for the HiLo first.

Tell you what - We'll put our money where our pump is and offer you a $100 voucher off a HiLo pump. To redeem you must post here, a side by side video of pumping with your $20 westmarine/walmart pump and your new HiLo pump.
Are you game?

That's great but pumping stuff up is isn't really a problem for me. Even a big kite only takes a minute or two to pump up.

What I really want is a micro pump I can leave stashed in the car for emergencies.

What really concerns me is that I have multiple boards and bars and kites and wings and foils. They're all for different uses but there's enough overlap that I have a spare of anything so I am never caught out. Most of those things can be repaired with a bit of duct tape.

I only have one pump. If that pump fails or I forget the pump or the adapter then I'm screwed. A spare micro pump would be great for emergency backup and travel. It would need to be compact enough to fit in the car in the spare tyre well with the other tools and emergency repair stuff.
We hear you and will have more options in the future for your Micro pump needs.
To start, we wanted to come out with a bad a** SUPER pump. One that's not like anything else out there because that's more our style.
But we hear your need and will work to fill it soon!
