Our website: App -ly as Needed

We've just finished up a project that we've been tinkering with the last few months. A bit like Area 51, this explains the sometimes weird formatting you might have encountered recently as we experimented under deep secrecy. Not even our cockatiel was aware of what was going on (which is good since we don't have a bird).

Since the last major revision to the website a few years back, it's been relatively mobile device friendly. Relatively. There were some things that probably could have been done better but at least google didn't complain when we did mobile tests on their search console we use. However, we came across something neat on windguru.cz, a site we link under forecasts: a tutorial on how to "appify" a website, ie turn a website into a mobile app. Inspired, we've generated a special page you can go to and use for your "windsportatlanta.com" app. However, if you prefer, you can turn the regular home page into an app by the same process.

Holiday Party. Yay! (Saturday, Dec. 16)

It's almost that time. We've already announced it but some people just won't show up until we write an article about it. We're having a Holiday Party! What? Now you need details? Well, why didn't you say so?

The Details!

39th Fall Classic - Details and Notice of Race

It's that time again! The world's second longest running windsurfing race - the Fall Classic. This year is the 39th running and, like a fine wine, Sigourney Weaver and Sean Connery, it keeps improving with age. Here is the official announcement, the Notice of Race. For you non-racey types (most of us), it includes the schedule of events, and other stuff that you'd want to know. This is a great race for racers and great weekend for non-racers.

Mary Richards - Part 1

Summer is here. In a lot of places, summer means gentle breezes or more. Bonaire is breezy in June. Same with the Mediterranean, Hawaii, the Gorge and the Atlantic coast. Here, we have hot air whose only movement is straight up in the afternoon into the stratosphere igniting a thunderstorm.

Let's be honest. Atlanta just isn't really windy. Sure, in late fall, winter and early spring we can get some good winds but unless you are absolutely a) mad, and/or b) hard-core, you may decide windsurfing on a 42 degree (Freedom Unitsahrenheit) isn't for you. If you are a) mad and/or b) hard-core, you still have to come to grips with the fact that for much of the year whitecaps just aren't a regular thing.
