One of the best purchases every from where I stand, or pump, not. Rather be putting my wetty on or laying out the lines...and letting the kite pump to the correct presssure everytime.


What he said :lol: I get the same crap from everyone but then they ask to use it, every time :roll:

I am looking for a small compressor, what are people using? I want to use it for kites, SUPs, car tires, etc.

I am not looking for a huge one but something to store in a garage but also can be easily carry.

Thank you,
B

My high pressure electric pump sucks, no longer switches to high pressure mode which makes it useless... I now use a cheap Coleman air bed pump which is really cheap and quick to fully inflate with no pressure, . Then I just top it off with my cheap amazon hand pump at full speed. I mostly use this for my 17m/19m so it saves me lots of energy

I like my Liquid Force pump. The larger diameter moves more air faster. Plus I have my small Coleman electric, which gives it the volume first, even if it doesn't give enough pressure. I connect the electric, go unwind my lines, and by the time I get back to the kite, I just need 20 or so hits on the pump, even with my big 17M.

I don't bother with the "Super Shaft". That breaks too easily.

^ I have the same liquid force pump and it is much harder to pump compared to any cheap 10€ pumps what I have used.
I recommend you to attach the liquid force maxflow nozzle to some other pump
