Connect to the wind!
If you windsurf, kitesurf or sail, use BuscaViento to know when, where, and how much the wind's blowing at your favorite spots along the coast of Catalonia, Castellon, Valencia, Alicante, Murcia and now Madrid.
View exact REAL-TIME wind statistics every 15 minutes measured with BuscaViento's OWN SENSORS at privileged locations right on the beach - wind speed, direction, gusts, force, tendency - and configure a different wind alert for each beach to be alerted when the wind picks up. Forget about phone calls, mistaken forecasts, and wasted trips and let BuscaViento ALERT YOU when the wind blows. An indispensable tool to not miss a single day of sailing.
NOTE: BuscaViento wind data are NOT from free forecasts or public sensors, but REAL READINGS from OUR OWN SENSORS installed right on the beach. You can try it free for 15 days, then there's a small subscription fee to cover sensor maintenance and ensure the high quality of our service.
