Like Eric said, there are tons of kites with one pump. Stick with those.

actually I just noted my disappointment of the lack of one pump and others decided to make it a one pump vs none thread. Sometimes a little criticism is good and for me I've always liked his kites! So I just say take it on the chin and accept that sometimes criticism can be for positive reasons! :allbegood:

hahahaha, one pump - 6 struts, O in the end you re all lazy bones,
well me and my friends (all blond) will pump up your kites, deflate them and nicely put them back (with hardly any sand) in your (EH) kitebag. For this service we charge only 5 Euros :D

In this case less is more.
For a high performance kite that's not prority but reliability :angryfire:
I think you should keep it to yourself your window & 1 pump rhetoric :soap: :respect1:
and your attitude toward which have been clarifyed already.
If you don't have any pride to pump you have the option of foil kites also :lol:

biggins, it's a good review. Throw er into the obvious Ovando thread in the review section.
Maybe people will behave themselves in there?

Or is it more like wading into a conversation about sport car engines complaining about cupholders?

Enough on the one-pump issue. If you have to have one-pump get a different kite.

I think this kite is the real deal and ordered an 11 meter.

I will post a review after I receive it and give it a fair test.

that one pump debat is hilarious from a foil rider perspective :)

u should go ride instead of debating on useless things like that...

my question: in lightwind times, how the ovendo relaunch in sub 8/9 knots? LEI suck in that wind range for relaunches but my be the zeeko LW which seems to be relaunched in 6 knots , like a flysurfer ( i did'n say foils)

Ive been riding the Ov9 and 11 they do work great, waiting for wind to juice up the 7, The kite just feels right comparing it to others, 'streamlined' is a good word!
