You guys are crazy, riding in 40-50 knots of wind with 5 m2 kites, strapless
Doesnt work for me or others, not even with straps, and certainly not without...
A 4 m2 max.
For most average weights, 30 knots / 15½ m/s is where a 5 m2 starts getting too big on a surfboard
Possible, but not sweetspot.
40-50 knots average wind is 21 to 26 m/s, that is a hell of a lot of wind, and the gusts are crazy now, even higher
I dont know why people tend to exaggerate wind so much?
Could be potentially dangerous for some.
It seems many take the highest windspike of the whole day, measured from a high located weatherstation, when windy, and when hydrofoil low end wind, they take a handheld minimum wind, both in order to brag about "crazy high or low" winds
