I've had problems with both the inflate and deflate valves on a few of my Wainmans. Replaced them with Airtime valves and everything has been good.

Find the leak and you will know.

I have had new kites with pinholes before. I find using a swimming pool an easy and quick way to find a leak.

Rock On!

Sure sounds a lot better than a one pump system, well done. If I had to fix pin holes in a new kite or change all of the valves I would be one pissed off customer. Why would anyone put up with this?
