Old mate decides to buy himself kitegear on Gumtree before any lessons or research.

Anyway we cannot pump it up, it has an old screw connection which does not seem compatible with anything these days. Does anyone have a spare or know where to find one?

Likely the same as Fluid ATV which I got back then; has the same valve as Cabrinha's of that era. Still quite readily available.

LOL. Surely you can do better research than be asking here? As stated, the Cabrinha One Pump is what you're after. Great kites the old ATV or EGOs. Enjoy

yeah it is a different valve to the pre-2012 cabrinha, that didn't fit the screw connection, ended up using the slightly tapered tube connection (also from a cabrinha pump) which worked by jamming it in, if that's what you meant?

Anyway the bloke is happy with his purchase, thinks he's got a bargain

but what a fkn scary kite... a 10m 3-strut kite turns and feels like a 14m Rev or Crossbow

Explains why Steve from old KSS in Altona sold them. Great beginner kite for most winds.
