Hi my name is Grégoire Lafortune, I'm a windsurfer and software developer from Montreal Canada.

Since 2016 I'm working on a new project : iGetwind.com. It's a wind/waves/tides forecast web application for kitesurfers and windsurfers worldwide.

I made it easy to compare forecast models in North America : HRRR, NAM, GFS (NOAA) + HDPRS (CAN). Plus waves/tides for any location. You just have to click on the map where you want to get the forecasts.

I invite you to try it and send me feedback :

https://igetwind.com

Thank you and good wind!

Grégoire

For california you get wind/waves/tides forecasts. All main wind forecast models.

You just have to click on map anywhere on california (or double tab on mobile device).

There is forecast everywhere worlwide except the poles.

Come back to me if you're still having issues getting forecasts on https://igetwind

Hi guys,

new for 2022 you can now put "reatime wind" graph in your list of spots. You can choose from 40K wind stations worldwide (thanks NOAA).

Have a good wind season!

You do realize that you are promoting your product on the website of a direct competitor. I don't know if that is insensitivity to the folks who developed iWindsurf etc., ignorance that tens of thousands of hours (many unpaid) went into developing the whole thing from the beginning, or something else.

However good your product may be, please respect the people who need iW, weatherflow etc for their families' livelihoods.

Thanks for your comment I understand your concerns.

I have been a paid customer for a long time of iwindsurf and I still use it everyday. My website igetwind is not a replacement to iwindsurf. It is a complementary service that every wind enthousiast will benefit from as much as iwindsurf.
