I bought a large kids pool inflator from makro for 20 which fills my 5mtr tornado from flat in about 2 mins just use bellows to finish after launch

When you say after launch is that because of tubes hitting cold surface it losses a bit pressure ? I new so forgive the dumb question

Its just a case of topping it up if its needed. My old SIB we'd just pumped it up till it was fairly firm & if it deflated alittle just top it up out on the water. As long as there firm its usually fine i found. The pressures always changing though with cause of the sun verses cold water.

Its like with my thundercat, its pressured to 0.4 bar on the tubes & 0.8 on the hyjackers but if i beach it & leave it in the sun i have to take some air out otherwise it gets too much pressure leading to blown tubes!
