I thought the Crissy Fields wind meters have always been reserved to premium subscribers? Can't you just make predictions and see what the neighboring free sites give you? You can also look at the NOAA website, stormsurf and pretty soon you will get good, just need a bit of work to do it yourself if you don't want to pay for the premium package. Oh, and don't forget the cameras, just open the wind cams and see if there's somebody kiting.
What Supermonkey said. It's less than $10 a month if you join for a year. It costs me that much in gas to drive one way to Sherman (my local spot) and WAY more to drive to Waddell (they need to get that friggin phone line fixed, though).
And you WILL miss sessions that Ikite subscribers get when the free forecasts are wrong...
Paul aka Pablito It says 10M, but it's really a 9.
I lost 3rd Ave. Channel as well- my primary sensor. Pretty much useless now without a sub. Surfline is only $70 bucks a year. WTF? I'd say 100/yr is not quite good value, but extremely convenient to get everything in one click after customizing myiK.
