Hi my name is Grégoire Lafortune, I'm a wind enthousiast and software developer from Montreal Canada.

Since 2016 I'm working on a new project : iGetwind.com. It's a wind/waves/tides forecast web application for kitesurfers and windsurfers worldwide. North America gets models HRRR, NAM, GFS, HDPRS and europe gets ICON-EU and GFS. Plus waves/tides and GFS forecasts for the entire world.

I invite you to try it and send me feedback :

https://igetwind.com

Thanks

Grégoire

Hi,

looks sleek!
I usually use the following because it allows multicomparison.
https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/fo ... ca_4153188

It would be nice to expose the location in the url so that it works with bookmark without sign in

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

My first goal was to be able to compare multiple spot, so you can decide where to go based on forecast for different location. To compare forecast side by side for one spot is also a good idea. It will probably come in a futre release.

It does :)
click on "Share" tab and you will see a direct link to your spot. But it's better to register and save your spot as the system will pre-fetch the forecast and it will be faster to load next time you come.

Thanks

Thanks, yes share worked.
For site by site comparison it would be convenient the scroll to move all sides together (so that I can compare by checking the vertical line)

By the way, very nice user interface! :thumb:
