  • Russia claims radioactive cloud moving toward Western Europe
    To check current patterns, I recommend, it gives a very nice view on direction and strength of winds from global down to local scale. Source: about 1 year ago
  • How to plan swims and currents/waves in a new area?
    A swimmer asked me the exact same question after I gave a talk recently on open water swimming around the Greek island of Crete. I start from Google Earth to measure the distances and check for the local wind conditions and forecasts. However, as I say in Crete Swim, "Avoid wishful thinking. Your swimming conditions are not what they are “supposed to be”—they are nothing more or less than what is... Source: about 1 year ago
  • What is the most interesting website that you know of but that many people don't seem to know about?
    For no bullshit weather forecast: I learned about it when I learned sailing. But since then I started using it as my standard weather website, because it gives you precise by-the-hour forecast for the next couple days without all the bullshit you have on usual weather websites.

  • Swimming off Greek islands
    Naxos should be nice! In July and August there may be days with strong winds from the north/northwest. The flatter water to swim in will be from beaches that are south-facing. You can check the current wind and forecasts at or Often (but not always) the mornings are calmest and the wind will build in strength during the day. You might even be tempted to learn windsurfing or kitesurfing... Source: over 1 year ago
  • How do y'all keep from getting discouraged?
    When I first started hunting, I spent so much money trying to hide scent. I had no luck back then. Since I started playing the wind, I've had way better results. With websites like, I can check the wind long before I go out, even a few days in advance. Ive tagged out just playing the wind and not using cover scents. Source: over 1 year ago

  • How to stay in one spot?
    Anchor works, obviously. I also recommend checking wind forecast before every trip using an app or website like It shows you how strong the wind will be and lets you easily visualize where it will be coming from. It's pretty accurate from my experience. Using this, you should plan your trip to stay as out-of-the-wind as possible. It's much easier to work with or work around the wind than to try to...

  • Why is it always so dang windy now. Not just recently, but I feel like over the past year it’s been unusually windy. I don’t wanna fly a kite every day, I’m just looking for my hair not to be a complete mess and for my belongings not to fly away.
    According to, my go to, it's going to finally calm down tonight and tomorrow am. Time to get to fishin'. Source: over 2 years ago
  • What is a really good distance to swim in an hour?
    Thanks for sharing and having such a positive spirit. I checked Google Earth for Playa Union and find your swim track is probably 2.0 km. I think this is a good effort given that you just restarted swimming recently. Your track shows that you ended up south of your starting position, probably being blown downwind by northerlies, and indeed shows northerlies for Puerto Madryn. It was correct to...

  • Just stepped outside anyone know what's up with the AQI?
    The Bay Area / Economic engine of the US has to smell its own farts/pollution because there is not the usual wind off the ocean to blow it away into the Central Valley. Source: over 2 years ago
