Our mission is to convey this enthusiasm in our service and the tools we provide. In short, our aim is to get you on the water as much as possible and in as many different ways as possible.
We aim to provide as much useful data as necessary to our users and accompany it with some intuitive and useful tools. As such we provide the following:
- Wind & Swell Forecasts
- Animated forecast charts
- Forecast alerts
- Live / Current weather
- Search & Monitoring Tools
- Wetsuits, sunscreen & T-shirts etc…
Bigsalty Weather initially started off as a project set up by UK based professional windsurfer James Cox due to his trivial pursuit of looking for epic conditions. Grandiose dreams of commanding low pressure systems and conducting wave trains led to years of toil and sweat. The aim of creating the Bigsalty weather service was always to develop forecasting knowledge features and enjoy the fruits of nature whenever wind, swell or clear waters prevailed. Come what may the intention is that some of you gnarly, weather beaten professional human beings can benefit from using this service and sharing the ethos. The physical need and existential reality of spending time in the company of salt, wind, water, air and friends regardless of your lifestyle restrictions, background, sport or favourite band remains our highest priority.
Bigsalty Weather is a reality that is better shared amongst friends so tell your people about it and help it grow. The more it grows the more useful it will become and we love loyalty.
