No kite pumps in CO

Postby dracop » Sun Feb 04, 2018 2:00 am

Wow, so I am in CO on a ski trip and am trying to find a pump as I did not pack one.

There are no kite shops and in the winter all of the SUP shops put their stuff in storage.

I am left with a local instructor charging $50 for an Ozone Mega Pump or waiting on amazon Prime to deliver a cheap double action pump.

Word to the wise, if you try to go snowkiting in CO, bring your own pump despite the hassle of packing it.

You could use mine if I had one but I only own and fly foils :wink: did we meet the other day on lake dillon? I was on a 15m foil roaming around in not much wind. Snow on the lake should be good after this storm passes.

If it is a tall "WMFG" style pump, it is worth it. Everyone I let use mine buys one. I paid $60.
