i dont mind the funky font but it definitely doesn't match the default bootstrap theme very well :p
Yeah your right but I think bootstrap needed some jazz that's why I added the fonts. And I'm really a programmer not a designer :)
OK, I'm doing it wrong. I was sweeping my finger across the mouse to scroll. Didn't think to "click and drag" it. It scrolls fine. Sorry.......
Great so there is no bug! Yes!

Hi Grégoire
It looks good and useful. Thank you.
May I suggest that you provide some assurance that registered users will not have their email addresses bombarded with advertising and spam.. it is always a concern.

Anyone have seen the new rule on windguru ? Now the high resolution forecasts (like NAM 12km) for custom spots are PRO subscription only on windguru.

All free on https://igetwind.com :)

I just added a new model : ICON 13 km for the whole planet. Data are from Germany weather agency (Deutscher Wetterdienst).

So for you guys that are not in North America or Europe you will have something to compare GFS to.

Let me know what you think about it : https://igetwind.com/

Thanks for sharing and the effort you put in, I added the link to my spot in favorites.

Is it possible to embed the wind forecast table on my personal wind page (https://www.solrac.nl/wind/)? Now I have an link that also works, but I was just wondering if this is possible.

Cheers,

Bill

Really like having tides incl with the forecast. They are normally critical at the spotswhere I sail. What times are they showing? Are they local for spot etc? For example in the UK its GMT in winter and GMT + 1 hour in summer?Thanks for all your work!

I like it too, the tide time data is really useful at my local spots too. Only gripe is that this is based on ocean data as opposed to the specific local tide information. Whether its neaps or springs can make a big difference to me.

Thanks for your comment I'm super happy you like the app. For now it is not possible to embed the wind graph on a web page, but it will come.

Thanks! All forecasts (everywhere in the world) are showed local time.

For some location I use local tide chart from local authorities (Cape Cod, Hatteras, San Diego, Maui and Canada IDM,Québec). For the rest of the world I'm using a calculation software made by Oregon State University USA. It is very reliable (input data are from satellite observation, etc...) BUT sometimes not exactly the same as tide charts made by local authorities. If you want specific local tide chart for your spot on iGetwind just let me know I can certainly add them. Thanks!

Is there a way to get the units for NAM 12 to show in knots and Celsius as opposed to mph and F?
