I'm new to the area and excited to start kiting some of the regional lakes.

I'm also planning on travelling up to the OR and WA for some kiting. I would like to meet some local kiters to learn more about the area?

What websites can I use to forecast the wind?

Thank
Nick Shawnik

Welcome to Utah Nick,

I'd recommend our Weather tab above as a good start. I find it moderately useful.

You can also check the Windriding section from the UWA Home tab for a daily forecast.

Check the "Local Sites & Maps tab also. It'll help you make your own forecast, or decode
the forecast in the Wind Riding section.
