GeoRush – Clever weather for kitesurfers
A new website has launched that promises to answer the prayers of kitesurfers everywhere. GeoRush tackles the extreme sport’s biggest bugbear – bad weather. A revolutionary application crunches reams of data, including wind speed, water temperature and swell, to give the most accurate rating system yet of nearly one thousand kitesurfing destinations.
As any kitesurfer will know, your level of enjoyment depends on a heap of variable weather conditions, meaning that up until now, you needed a maths degree to find the best kiting locations on a given day.
GeoRush’s new website promises to change all that. A unique algorithm processes weather information to generate a simple 0-10 rating for every kitesurfing destination over a five-day window – taking into account:
- Wind Speed
- Wind Direction
- Water Temperature
- Air Temperature
The data is gathered from respected local sources as well as the Global Forecast System.
Founder, Paul Carey, says:
“We’re all keen kitesurfers and software developers, so GeoRush was our own way to take on the weather and win. We were getting tired of heading out to a beach somewhere, putting the wetsuits on, and then waiting for a wind that would never come. Now kitesurfers can use this website to search destinations all over the world and plan their trips according to the most accurate forecast of the crucial conditions available. It’s a guaranteed adrenaline fix in a few little clicks!”
