Thanks for creating this!

Could you add a feature to allow users to customize which hours are shown each day? For example, 06h to 18h as opposed to 06h to 22h?

In tropical areas of the world, near the equator, the hours of daylight are roughly 06h to 18h both in summer and in winter. So, most kitesurfers won't care about seeing the predicted wind after 18h as they aren't likely to kite after sunset. Similarly I can imagine that some users may only want to see predicted winds for afternoons in case they have work commitments in the mornings, etc. Allowing customized hours would help make the tool even more attractive.

Is there a way to get the units for NAM 12 to show in knots and Celsius as opposed to mph and F?
Yes it's there : click on "settings" at the bottom of the page.

That's a great idea! I will do it in a near future. Thanks!

Hi guys I've worked all winter and igetwind is better than ever!

I've added lots of different models to compare for America and Europe. There is also high res wave forecasts and NOAA tide charts to all North America.

Excellent!! Take note that you can compare forecast models that comes from different sources. Let me know what you like and don't like about the website. Thanks a lot!

Great work!

As for the different forecast models, it would be awesome if they can be displayed all under each other! At least for wind strength & direction like in windy app.
