Just pump it until it's hard, it's not rocket science. You don't need a gauge, in fact most gauges are completely worthless. Just flick the LE and keep pumping until it goes from a dull thud sound to a "ping"

I hold the kite up and gently "bend" it on the sand, if it is easy to bend and pops back into shape then all good :thumb:

I would only ever use a pump gauge to ensure consistency as there is no real way of ensuring the accuracy of the reading.
