Magic Seaweed Raw Data - 2008/08/10 22:41 Any ideas where Magic seaweed get their wind forecast data from? I know they get the raw wave height data from the NOAA spectral data tables e.g.:
http://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/nww3_bull.cgi?1&latest_run/nww3.62081
But I'd love to know where you can get similarly formatted wind data

Re:Magic Seaweed Raw Data - 2008/10/13 21:08 Ah well, figured it out. Took me about 2 months busting my arse!

Have to say the MSW model is very simplistic . Surfline do a little bit more with the data but don't cover so many spots.

Anyhow, I've got a few ideas how to tweak it using the spectral data where available

Re:Magic Seaweed Raw Data - 2008/10/14 22:13 Hi,

I was in France last summer and surf at Le Cimetière ( http://www.wannasurf.com/spot/Europe/France/Gironde/Le_Cimetiere/index.html ). This is a spot I've added to Wannasurf. I just found it at yosurfer.com here: http://www.yosurfer.com/surf_spots/europe/france/gironde/le_cimeti.htm but it's like your importing script does not handle French special characters!

Why not helping Wannasurf integrating/building this kind of weather forecast tool instead of building a separate website from wannasurf data?

Anyway, this is a nice tool, maybe try to add some colours like in Windguru http://www.windguru.com/fr/index.php?sc=48561.

Best,

Brice

Re:Magic Seaweed Raw Data - 2013/07/07 02:03 Hey surfgatinho,

can you tell me how did you find the model ?
I am also looking how they get their data and also what model they use.


Cheers.
