its 2 individual kites, and no there is no one pump for wainman kites, as a kite repair person i prefer them over one pumps.

cheaper for a single kite, but way more responsive stacked, and your options are also increased by flying this quiver 2 5m and 2 7m = 5 m , 7 m ,10m and 14m, some will love it some will hate it. The general population hated cars when they first came barreling down the road,.
The board is a Kailolo custom phish...the other white phish.

sweet, a car ANALogy, that's refreshing.

sarcasm aside, now here's some cynicism,

How do your different size kites stack up against a single kite
ie how does a 7 on top of a 5 compare.

Wait, let me guess, it's as powerful as a 12 but as quick as a 7.

If kite stacking wainmans kites is the way to go, did they only make a 15m for 'old school?'

Seriously and more positively, It actually appeared successful on the video. It would be great if the benefits of kite stacking (minus the drawbacks) made it the way of the future.

so lolo, let me get this right- you have to pump up each kite individually?

Lolo, please post video of water relaunch after safety release (two in a row for authenticity), and some progressive kiting for the more advanced (not me)

What if you also stack the pumps on top of each other and duct taped them together????? Would it then be one pump

Does anybody have any serious questions , im runnin solo wingin it here!! as a matter of fact.


I dont see it working as well with 2 different sizes, everything needs to be in parallel .

More to come... will stack 2 7's today, and yes ride a twin tip, my least favorite, but will do it to see what the launch is like, in the name of science.

Kite stacks look like something from the Wright Bros.

and appear as stupid as 2 boats towing a wakeboarder.

You can stack two different kite sizes together like a 5m and 7m. The smaller kite goes on the bottom. Stacking C kites can be fun.....
