Need to know if it’s a good day to windsurf in Bali? Look no further than Weendy, the new smart phone app that aggregates official and crowd-sourced data regarding global weather and surfing conditions so extreme athletes can decide whether it’s a day for windsurfing or couch surfing.
Created by Greek wind and kitesurfing enthusiasts Katerina Stroponiati and Yiannis Varelas, Weendy is a free surf app that allows Adrenalists with weather-dependent pastimes to connect with others in their circle and share critical information about location-specific conditions that might affect the sporting day as well as talk generally about shared interests. Users can search for one another by location and by sport.
As a hedge against inaccurate user-generated weather reports and surfing conditions, Stroponiati and Varelas have shrewdly integrated weather reports from official meteorological sources. The surf app has already received $240,000 in venture funding and is poised to make a big impact in the extreme sports space. So, what are you waiting for? Get to downloadin’!
