So you're sitting on the beach with your favorite kite, your primo board, extra line, a sweet control bar, broken in harness, your brand new foot straps and SeaSpecs on your face. Before you hit that water, you have to make sure that you have the essential ingredient in kite surfing; wind. The Skywatch Xplorer 3 Windmeter is one of our favorite tools in our bag as it can tell us exact wind conditions. With this information, we can dial in our rig to our favorite profile and be on our merry way to the water.
The Skywatch Xplorer 3 Windmeter is capable of measuring windspeed, maximum windspeed, temperature, wind chill factor and comes equipped with a compass. The unit can be submerged safely up to six feet and has a backlight for those super early mornings. The unit also comes with a replaceable lithium battery and utilizes one button operation. Designed in Switzerland, the unit is also completely sealed with internal sensors.
