After getting my hands dirty with GRIB files and learning how to extract and import swell/wind forecast data, I've been working on doing this data justice at the front end.
Right now I'm testing it with a couple of locations in Western Australia. All going to plan it will be live by next week.
But as a closet onshore wind junkie - it's time for a midday session!

@Ray this is great man. I, too am wind junkie. I would definitely want to see and learn more about this. We also want to try an international weather forecast API (We as in, me and my dev friend). We have released the Windward app, but it doesn't look half as cool as this.
Can't wait to see more of this.
Thanks @Kerem. Windward looks great!
Happy to chat about it any time - DM me on Twitter if you like.
This looks epic @Ray ... How do I get it?
Hey Justin, I'm hopefully going to launch it with a limited set of locations next week. Stay tuned!
Interface looks amazing. Very, very well done. Reminds me a bit of the Nike Surf project by @Dann Petty - http://www.behance.net/gallery/Nike-60-Surfcali/1242523 - but that's only ment as a compliment :)
I might make a rebound with the same interface concept - but for weather :)
Thanks Wes :)
beautiful, where did you get that wave image? Would love to use it as a wallpaper!
Love the simplicity & beauty of this data crunching layout.
another surfer on dribb? heyo! looks fun dude. i could see something like this incorporated to the surf apps i have coming with surfline. keep it up.
Looks fantastic Ray, excited to give it a go :) How did you end up sourcing the data?
Thanks everyone for your kind comments! Stoked you dig it.
@TJ Weigel - a mate of mine took the photo. It will be one of the images on the Perth forecast page when it goes live.
@Dann Petty definitely thinking about an API down the track.
@Dylan - I checked through various data formats - ultimately it was the raw stuff that I needed - it had all the parameters. Happy to explain in more depth over email if you want.
