Water Sports & Sailing Apps

Weather Forecasts in Watersport Apps

Using smarphone apps to be able to get insight on where and when to go fishing, sailing or surfing is becoming increasingly popular and it’s easy to understand why. It’s simply a great way to increase the performance of your surf or fishing session without having to spend a vast amount of time reaserching weather forecasts.

The Storm Glass API is the perfect data source to power your application with global high-resolution forecasts via one single integration. By sending in a coordinate and filter out the data that’s actually relevant for the app users, you will be able to create a quick and responsive experience for the users.

The most relevant weather parameters for watersports available in the API is:

  • Wave – height, direction & period

  • Swell – height, direction & period

  • Secondary Swell – height , direction & period

  • Wind Wave – height, direction & period

  • Wind (multiple altitudes) – speed, direction & gust

  • Tide, Water- & Air Temperature

  • Sunrise / Sunset

For Fishing applications astronomy data is also highly relevant:

  • Moonrise / Moonset

  • Moon Phase

  • Closest Moonphase & Moon Fraction
