For sure there are factors such as local conditions, the specific kite design and type of fabric that have an effect on the deterioration due to exposure to wind when on the ground.

But I believe nobody will maintain that leaving a kite on the ground flapping is good for the kite. Just look at a flag after a few weeks of exposure.
This ^^^^

Flapping IS the new smoking.

Every minute parked in sun and wind runs up the odometer.

As to rinsing, generally only if they get muddy. I think drying is more important. Lightly salted helps with mildew.
