Here is the calculation using the Gates calculator

Showing 100 psi at the compressor and 15 cfm output with a 30 foot run you will have a pressure loss of 27.97 psi with 1/4" hose, 3.32 psi with 3/8" hose and .73 psi with 1/2" diameter hose. Thanks to DINGER for the link to the calculator. So the choice is yours. How much pressure loss can you live with ?
