I'm not sure what your fascination with average wind is. But that is not what is being discussed here. The title clearly states 30-50 knots. That is a min of 30 knots and a max of 50. Average wind in 30+knots is an almost useless measurement as the wind is hardly ever clean. The safer way to consider wind is looking at the min max gust lull of the day. An average wind of 35 knots gusting from 30-40 knots is reasonably controllable. The same average wind on 35 knots with a gust/lull swing15-60 knots will kill you.

Riding with small kites is all about riding fast otherwise it's too on/off. And to ride fast you need to be comfortable and not overpowered. If you have to keep your speed down because you're maxed out, and worried about a gust 2 kts stronger, it's much less enjoyable. Get a tiny kite, and ride full speed with a safety margin!
