I recently discovered "LIVE WIND" which is found on the far left of the same menu line as "Forums" on the home page of iWindsurf.com. When I opened LIVE WIND the map portion shown was on the west coast. It was easy to progressively move east on the map until Iowa was in the center and then zoom in to the level I wanted. When LIVE WIND is re-opened it shows whatever area I was looking at the last time.

I use LIVE WIND to look at the current wind flow in a wide area around my Iowa location.

George,
Where do we find this on the iWindsurf site?
For some reason I don't see it anywhere?

Brian, I'm guessing you carefully read the first sentence of my opening post, but don't see LIVE WIND in the left hand corner of the 3rd menu line, because your bookmark for iWindsurf.com takes you to a 2nd page instead of the 1st page.

Solution: don't use your usual bookmark. In your search engine (such as Google) type in "wx.iwindsurf.com" or "iWindsurf.com" which should bring you to a page which has "iWINDSURF in the top left corner of the first line, "Popular" at the far left of the 2nd line, and "LIVE WIND" at the far left of the 3rd line. If that gets you to "LIVE WIND" then you may want to create another bookmark.

Brian- Head to the main iwindsurf.com homepage:
http://wx.iwindsurf.com/

In the MyWeather menu, choose LIVE WIND.

Or, as Del said, you can hit the LIVE WIND link in the toolbar.

Here's a visual:

Thanks Del and George. Del was right - I was not opening the home page.
