Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
I've been using the Bravo 4 pump for several seasons. It has a really cool feature that allows you to convert the pump from a double-action into single-action. This feature is great when the pressure resistance gets strong because it's more efficient pushing down on the pump and it's easier on your back & shoulders.
This pump has an aluminum shaft and seems to be better built than what I've seen from other companies including the hose & attachments.
This pump was hard to find. I purchased the pump from here... http://www.waterstrider.com
actually no, at least 2 companies have come out with new/better pumps
LF has the Maxflow. Definitely a lot more robust than a normal pump. the larger diameter max pumping faster, but harder at the end to get pressure. http://vimeo.com/14383094
Cab also has a new pump, it doesn't look that different from the old, but it looks like they upgraded it to make it more reliable too.
where is your pump leaking? the advantage of the old pumps is they were super easy to fix. if it's the hose, just buy a new hose (home depot), if it's the valves, seal, get some grease...

High-larious. I couldn't watch more than 30 seconds of that max flow video. Not sure if its a spoof or for real. I've tried to fix the old ones. Grease did not help. I even think it hurt because it captured sand. On one it is the seal at the shaft. On the other, I think its the flap in the piece that moves up and down, but not sure. I guess I am off to walmart.
I am surprised no one said to get one of these.
