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 ?
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.
Landboard same as water. To be honest though i typically will jump in the water first on those days. Its way safer and more fun. The landboard stops being fun around 30 knots.
In the buggy. (on the beach, i don't ride on the grass) So 35 knot max gust I guess. because I have nothing smaller to use.
That's all on my smallest kite 6m reo.
Tell you want though. I would love a 5m ozone edge for stupid speed runs in the buggy.
