what makes this different from windguru/windfinder/ikitesurf? Looks like the same forecast models displayed in the same format
Thanks for your question. I created igetwind.com because I felt current forecast websites were slow to consult for kitesurfers and windsurfers who are actively looking for wind regularly. I wanted as much information as possible at one place.
The web interface on igetwind let you open different spots and save them (up to 10) so it makes it very easy to choose between spots. Also there is tide data on the graph for those who kitesurf on ocean. There is also wave forecasts.
If you look closely you will notice that I show data hourly, wich is more precise forecasts for those who have less time to kite (on workday).
Users can also add spots so a database of kitesurfing spot worlwide will evolve and local community can interact on a chatbox and share local knowledge. The other weather sites usualy show forecast spot wich have nothing to do with where people practice the sports.
I did'nt try to reinvent the wheel but to create a better tool so people can find wind and practise kitesurf more often. I hope you enjoy it!
Ha! and the interface is mobile friendly
