Having trouble gauging the Wind?? Simon to the Rescue!



 If you have trouble gauging the wind speeds and therfore what Kite or Sail to Rig.. this could be for you (as long as you use Apple products)

Hi Surfladle

 
My name is Simon Palmer I am a keen local kitesurfer and windsurfer
 
I have developed a couple of weather apps for kitesurfers and windsurfers that utilises all of the Channel Coast Observatories (https://www.channelcoast.org) around the UK to provide real time wind speed, gust, tide, direction and temp data that can be accessed on iPhones and iPads from the nearest observatory (Arun,Worthing and Brighton for us). It then provides an estimation of kite size/sail size for user entry wind speed based on the CCO data. The idea is that kiters and windsurfers can check the data real-time on their IOS devices in their cars before rigging, for the best and hopefully safest Watersports experience. The kite size calculation is really for beginners but more experienced riders may be reassured by the same.
These are inexpensive and have been quite popular with more than 200 downloads of each app locally so far.

Kind regards!
 
Simon
