No way you can go from bag to pumped in 1 min. I bet it takes you 20 seconds just to attach the pump.
And 40 seconds to pump the 12 sqm to 7 PSI....done

Just sayin that whatever time " you really " take to have your closed cell 12 sqm fully inflated overhead ready to go in the water....
...i'll only be 1 minute behind you with LEI....with lines permanently attached

Pumping and setting up kite at edge of window parallel to wind flow
Launch like a ram air...LEI on it's back..trailing edge weighted to prevent spin out...upper wing weighted
Unroll lines walking 45 degrees upwind in less than 25 sec. & launch
Learned that way from years of ram airs and do same with Lei's because it's fast....LE don't get scraped...no need for tether or anchor
