Hurricane wind and remnants are incredibly unpredictable, you can go from 25mph to 75mph in a second with zero warning. NO THANKS

I been out in 55 mph winds a few times and found that if the lines are too long you get a huge bend in your lines between you and the kite. I ride 20 meter lines when its hectic. One line break in wind like that and its over. Here is a pic of some super steady 55 mph wind.
