wx.iWindsurf.com has launched!

Since 1999, iWindsurf has been the most popular place for windsurfers in North America for wind data, discussion forums, and classified ads. But the older system powering our classic website could not keep up with the growing number of weather stations, forecast models, and other data that windsurfers were craving.

We have now launched the new wx.iWindsurf.com website, built on a much more scalable system, allowing us to include orders of magnitude more data from weather stations and elsewhere -- including over 50,000 weather stations world-wide.

Classic www.iWindsurf.com and wx.iWindsurf.com are BOTH being supported and are available to you. The classic weather tools, including your myiW page, maps, and forecasts on Classic iWindsurf.com are not going away. Here at iWindsurf, we have always supported the new school AND the old school!

On Classic iWindsurf (which focuses just on North America), click on the Wind & Forecasts tab for our classic North America map, Met Forecast links, and all of the left-nav Region links:
http://www.iwindsurf.com/windandwhere.iws

And on Classic iWindsurf, click on the myiW tab for your customizable iWindsurf page, same as it has always been:
http://www.iwindsurf.com/myWeather.iws?home

BASIC INTRO TO WX.IWINDSURF.COM:
(1.) SEARCH FOR WIND
Go to http://wx.iwindsurf.com/ and type in your City or Postal Zip Code in the Search Box (example: SAN FRANCISCO, CA or HOOD RIVER, OR) --OR-- Click your location on the World Map (ex: BAJA) --OR-- use the drop-down menus at the top of the page to choose your region (ex: NORTH AMERICA / UNITED STATES / MASS. / CAPE COD, and hit "Go".)

(2.) CLICK ON ANY WEATHER STATION ON THE MAP
Find the station you want and click on it. A mini-graph data popup will come up. Click on the mini-graph or the "Forecast" or "More Details" button for tabs with deeper info for that weather station: Current Conditions Wind Graph, Forecast Table, iWindsurf Pro Meteorologist Forecast (in season), Onsite Reports, Nearby Tides. Click the little icon to the right of the station Name to go to the station detail page -- with Full graph, Forecast Tables, Daily Briefing, Data Archives, Wind Statistics, and more, all on one page. Example: Buzzard's Bay Buoy:
http://wx.iwindsurf.com/spot/781

(3.) FIND YOUR iW PRO METEOROLOGIST FORECAST / FULL HUMAN FORECAST (NORTH AMERICA ONLY)
All of the Pro Forecast discussions available on Classic iWindsurf are also available on wx.iWindsurf.com. To find your forecast, first do a SEARCH FOR WIND (see above, section 1). Click on a weather station on the map in one of the areas of North America where iWindsurf does daily Pro Met. Forecasts [during the season]. This will bring up a mini graph and data popup from the map. Click the "More Details" button, the right-side menu will open. Click the PRO FORECAST tab.

NOTE: Some Classic iWindsurf features are not yet available on wx.iWindsurf.com, such as the Gorge Gradients and the Gorge Windbow. Gorge sailors, keep these pages bookmarked!:

http://www.iwindsurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=139&Isection=Windbow&short=0

wx.iWindsurf.com has much deeper weather station and forecast coverage across all of North America -- the coasts, the great lakes, all the other lakes (Nebraska, Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico......), and all the rivers and bays -- as well as deep coverage across the entire World.

International Coverage--
We now have complete windsurfing wind & forecast info for Europe, Australia / New Zealand, South America, South Africa, etc, etc.

Many new weather tools: wx.iWindsurf.com includes our powerful new maps with Weather Stations at just about every windsurfing spot on Earth, Forecasts for every spot on the globe, improved Wind Alerts, Sea Surface Temperatures, improved Wind Statistics for all weather stations, improved Weather Station Data Archives, improved Radar, National Weather Service Marine Forecasts, Nautical Charts, Onsite Reports, and many additional tools such as our Wind Widgets that you can add to your website or blog: example Wind Widget page for Margaret River, Australia:
