Am I restricting too much air flow?

I have a 5hp 80 gallon compressor in my basement, but my garage is 30 feet from the house. I have 35 feet of 3/4" pipe running around the basement to cool the air, and an outlet on the side of my house that I plug a rubber 1/4" air line into. The rubber line goes out to the garage and connects to 30 feet of 1/2" pipe in the garage. I cant run metal lines out to the garage due to a massive concrete patio on my back porch. Is the 1/4" air line going from the house to the garage restricting my air flow? Can I pull 15 cfm through that line?
