Re: [ksurfschool] Valve on Naish kite keeps popping to the inside
- We also have this problem on 2 of the bladders
(naisheAR5 9.5)....ours however stays popped out once
the bladder is fully inflated. I assume that the
pressure inside the bladder has a lot to dio with
this...But it is a hassle while filling with air as
readjusting the nipple usually causes the air to be
lost...I have solved the problem by holding it out
with my fingers until the pressure builds up...
I do think that the type valve Naish have used seems
like beachball technology. ( inflatable boats use far
better valve systems and Naish should consider a
better, more user friendly type.)
