PredictWind: these are the real gurus

Windsurfers and kitesurfers have an upgraded wind forecast tool.

PredictWind.com offers new and sophisticated technology that combines local topography maps to create the highest resolution marine forecast available for over 20,000 locations around the world.

The marine weather forecasts are updated twice daily and you can choose three different products: a free service, a basic and a professional one.

Also, PredictWind provides graphs showing expected wind speed/direction, rainfall/cloud cover, temperature/barometric pressure and wave height/direction/period.

Jon Bilger is the founding director of PredictWind. The first release of Predictwind was published in 2008, but everything has changed since.
