I have to agree that in the example given (wind map of the gorge) I too vastly prefer the old map. I can see in seconds what I care about. The new one I have to zoom in to declutter all the useless topography to see anything. The wind maps for sites showing the whole day (instead of the newer “live” map is easier for my brain to gauge what is happening based on years of looking at the same maps. It’s about simplicity, not clutter and advertisements.

Then just remove all the clutter in the map:

or add satellite imagery to the map on a day when there is clouds in the corridor:

https://wx.iwindsurf.com/map#45.286,-123.701,9,240389

or if there are T storms that might move over your site add radar to the wind map:

The new windsurf is like a Swiss Army knife. If you just use one blade you are missing useful tools.

Here is the blade to use when you want to improve your odds of finding quality wind at Roos and The Wall: https://wx.iwindsurf.com/map#45.286,-123.701,9,240389
