It can be very misleading if you try to judge wind speed from video or photo. Once I took video of windsurfers in closed bay, it was offshore wind. I took measurement with wind speed meter 2 min average was 36kn, peak 45kn. But on the video it looks like the wind was less than 30kn, there were no big waves because it was closed bay. Most windsurfers were 90kg+ using 4mē sails, but this could not be seen from this perspective. Than I went on the other side of the bay where I could get light at another angle and it looked like 50kn.
