Ratings and Reviews
I work as a water sports instructors, kitesurfing, windsurfing , sailing and Windfinder is our main weather site. And we all find it quite accurate, it is also very easy to understand. Keep up the good work. I live in the Southern Caribbean on a little island call Tobago.
Love Windfinder for its informative weather content. Working on the water, it’s important to know the weather, wind speed and direction. This app provides that content on a semi hourly basis throughout the day as well as showing future forecasts.
Easy to use; just got better
It’s an easy, intuitive interface. The most recent update in March 2018 allows you to see wind direction arrows overlying the map. I have found the predictions pretty reliable, but it tends to underestimate windspeed by 1-3 mph.
