Hmmm, I really must be doing something wrong with our airdeck, although we've not been using it in a 'performance' situation where waves are a significant factor. I've been inflating it with a dual-action hand pump that takes me about 30 seconds (with no coronary) to get to a hard enough pressure that I can stand on it without any deformation.

Maybe next time we launch near the boatyard we got it from, I'll ask them to check the pressure for me with a gauge before we get going...

Do you just clip the jumpstart leads to the Bravo ones or have you modified in any way?

I have had the same problem as you. Can't get the airdeck to 800mb using the supplied footpump & it was knackering to get it to 600 or over...took ages too!!

The Bravo should be a lifesave I recon & hoping to try it out this weekend
Yeah just clip the Bravo crocs to the ones on the jumpstart battery - but leave the jumpstart crocs on their keepers so there is no chance of shorting.

I use a BST12 HP and power pack and has been great.

I do have a problem now in that the pump cuts out at low pressure. It is less than 12 months old and will probably have to send it back and hopefully not to Italy.

Anyone else had this problem or can advise where to send for repair?

Cheers

Used my new Bravo BST 12 HP pump for the first time at the weekend. What am amazing bit if kit it is...just worked brilliantly!!

Used one of the supplied adapters & it pumped up the tubes & airdeck to pressure in a few minutes - checked with manometer & pressures were correct (as dialed in on the pump).

As the pump was doing it's thing we got the other kit ready & we were off in 15-20 mins without any rushing at all.

Very happy with the purchase & worth the money on reflection...highly recommended!!

Was looking on the warranty card to see what it said ref repairs etc & they say you need to contact Scoprega (presumably by phone/email) to get a return authorisation & then post the pump back to them (postage paid) or to your supplier.

Hope this helps.

With my zodiac airdeck and a dual action hand pump (form lidl) I pump until the hand pump is straining before I get to the inflated symbol on my Zodiac inflation gauge.

I'll probably use a jump-start battery pack when I want to be more portable...anyone else tried this & is it successful?
Hi there, have just bought a bravo BST12 HPP, cost me 119.54 including delivery, best price I could find. Just wondering, will I need an adaptor for my honwave or does it come supplied with the pump.

Best wishes

Jake

Hi Jake,

I got an adapter with it but it happens to be the wrong one...it doesn't need a special one though as we used one of the ones supplied & it worked fine for both the tubes & the airdeck.

Got a hand pump then bought a trailer

I purchased a hand pump with pressure gauge for 20 quid and finally managed to get the air floor to that elusive 0.8 bar - it required about 16 - 20 cycles and the last 5 or so I thought the plastic rod connected to the piston would snap! I practically had to push down with all my weight.

Anyway I thought balls to all that effort and purchased a trailer far less hassle.
