no obstructions

in response to the wind,,if the wind is blowing inland and there are no obstructions to create turbulence,then you are pretty safe to fly in winds up to about 30 knots providing you have a fairly good glider,the air should be very stable and even if it isnt,it should be free of mechanical turbulence.
if you ever want to get good high wing experience,your in the right spot,but use your head and dont fly when there are to many people around
the only real rule is;;;;keep your nose into the wind and dont get blown over the back.
also like most said;;;find a slope,wait for the wind to blow straight up it and you will be amazed at the fun you can have!!!p.s. if the wind is hitting the slope at 45% or less,dont attempt it as there will be no or not much lift for an inexperienced flyier
