Live station, wind and waves forecast in MacOS

Hi, everyone! I have made a little script for myself. It shows live wind data from local meteostations, digest from wind and waves forecasts from WindGuru and MSW. So you don't have to constantly refresh these feeds, all the data is here on your menubar. I don't think I could find time to add featur...

Re: Russian kitesurfer dies in Kaliningrad

@edt Thank you for these details.

@Trigen 100 meters is pretty close and air/water conditions were far from extreme. Still harsh and that sad result. Lessons for everyone kiting in cold waters.

Re: Russian kitesurfer dies in Kaliningrad

@Bushflyr @RickI Where do you see kite loops? I see the surfer controlling kite with little speed (suggesting body dragging). After some time kite loses power and drops to water. After that there is 1-2 attempts to relaunch, which fail (due lack of wind or lack of lines tension). Since the guy made ...

Re: Russian kitesurfer dies in Kaliningrad

You can see rider there. He drops kite to water and floats from there.

What happened is unknown. He was taken from water with foam from his mouth, still with pulse.

Re: Waves in Asia

Phan Rang is not a consistent destination. It works only on a high tide & specific wind direction.

Phi organizes trips to Phan Rang, you can contact him about details in specific time frame.

Re: Anyone try the new Tona Pulse Surf boards?

Love the design, nice job from Tona team! But my next board is Vader :)

Coming back to Pulse, more info on durability would be nice. Kitesurf boards are breaking very fast.

Re: North Kiteboarding NBK - Why I will no longer buy north

All brands have some sorts of quality problems. So far I had quality questions from minor to major to all brands I've used: — North — Mystic — Slingshot — Tona All these brands took mine warranty claims with grace and replaced gear with a newer one. Maybe you have bad distributor, which represents N...
