depends. If it is gusting from 10 knots up to 40 knots that's a lot worse than gusting from 45 knots up to 55 knots.plummet wrote:gusts to 50? or 50+ gusts?edt wrote:i'm done when it gets above 50 knots
On the water.gusts past 45knots is too much. To be fair though we never get a solid 40+days gusting past 40 will be a good 20 knot gust to lull ratio. So 25-45.RedSky wrote:(talking buggy)
Inland wind I'd say about 15-20mph is a lot of fun in my park. After 25mph with all the turbulence and gusts then it becomes a survival exercise and less fun. Grass is scary, either too much grip or not enough. I can't powerslide on grass, so I have to be extra cautious. Relaxed cruising is way more fun than the ragged edge....sometimes.
Clean onshore wind within 20-30mph wind makes for a busy but fun session. Sand is great, its grippy yet breaks away when you need it too, which with the right kite pushes up the range.
I have not yet reached the point of too much wind at the beach and I'm not really a fan of big wind although I am curious as to how much a kite can take. How wet, surface condition, downwind room and the right kite all dictate how much is too much I'd say.
Whats yours plummet ?
