The Surf's Up on Google Maps

We Love Wind

We Love Wind is a Google Maps mashup that provides a global weather service showing wind information tailored to individual locations. The wind data shown on the map is transformed to make it relevant for wind sports.

The map shows surfable locations with green crosses and non-surfable locations with a green cross. Wind strength is shown by different coloured and different sized arrows. A wind forecast timeline is available under the map. Using the timeline it is possible to view the wind speed and direction forecast for the next few days.

We Love Wind also contains a surfing locations map. If your favourite surfing spot isn't currently on the map then you can add it yourself.
