Are wind speeds the same over land as they are over the ocean?

Picture of Water and Land

When you think about it, the water surface and the land surface are quite different! The land surface is characterized by mountains, trees, buildings, plants, rocks, mud, sand, etc. The ocean surface is characterized by relatively flat water!! So, do you think wind speeds are the same over land and water?
