KCW Rest Bay Weather Station

If I want to know wind speed, gusts & direction and how that's changed over the last few hours, I can get that at a glance from iktesurf. Doing so with the bracklesham UI takes a whole bunch of clicking around/mental visualisation and would still be lacking gusts. That doesn't always matter but ...

I have no experience of weather stations but creating and integrating with web APIs is part of my job. Do give me a shout if you (or Alun) think I can be of any help with this kit.

If no network gives acceptable coverage then a satellite connection should work fine for a weather station. I imagine cost and getting approval to install a dish could be problematic though..

That's great news! :)

Will the rest bay one show gusts? Will the data be published any other services? (e.g. ikitesurf.com)

I've not tried it down by the lifeguard station but in the car park the EE signal is quite weak.

Peter Lynn Swell 12m & 7m + bar

Bar & Lines now sold - for £110! :shock: Ive just had a second hand Swell V2 5m from Marc. I considered a new one with the package as its such good value but ended up with the second hand 5. I reckon the deals will keep the 2nd hand price down a bit but don't think you're far off with the price....

Dunno if I was asking too much but these didn't sell.. I'd kinda forgotten about them but am now going to advertise elsewhere - if anyone is interested then do make me an offer!! :)

Wind gauge looks good but it's cold dark and wet outside of my house - think I'm probably going to give it a miss.. anyone else braving it?
