Use some sand to hold the hole open. Push the sides of the hole in
towards each other and either roll the tube back on itself or put a
little sand just inside the tube to keep it open.
While you unwind the lines the air will flow in through the hole and
inflate the kite. You can get full inflation in this way.
Walk back checking the lines, pulleys and bridles. Close the velcro.
Launch your kite.
Preinflation is always a good thing especially if it takes no more
time to do. It also makes side launching the Warrior a lot easier.
