A must have for your pump !

Postby Toby » Wed May 22, 2013 10:02 am

I just received this pump handle extension from www.ethandle.com

This little tool is so much better for my back when pumping my kite.

Thx for inventing it :thumb:

Is it stable? Seems like it would pivot and flex a bit since its just Velcro'd around the stock handle.

BTW, what's that DVD you have in the background there?

After you pump up, can you attach it to your board handle to make board offs easier?

How about inventing a gizmo to extend the "flat base" height instead :cheers:

A friend put together this contraption so he could use the pump in knee deep water at a sandbar we go to. That is a supermarket crate of some sort.

Cool stuff!

An advantage is, you can take it anywhere and attach to any pump, if you travel without it.

I had to tie it really tight, and now it moves very minimal.

And to test it under load. I guess then I can also use the lower part.

Which DVD ?
