Kite Wing inland performance?


OK, so I posted this from my phone and no text came through so let me clarify... How do inflatable wings work inland? I know there has been a post or two about them but I'm thinking in parking lots with longboards, etc. How durable are the wings when contacting asphalt and is it better to go out on nuking days and manage lulls or low wind days and manage gusts? What is the sweat spot for wind conditions with these wings?

Thanks to the three of you below who posted info before I was able to add text explaining the purpose of the post.

The Squambats guys seem to love it, check out their facebook if you haven't recently. No idea how well it works with land board. I know this conversation has gone on before, but I'd assume it would drag on the ground too much.
