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.

Precision readings (+/- 0.5% or 0.1m/s at up to 15 degrees off axis) in m/s, mph, knots, km/h, and beaufort scales with range from 2mph to 125 mph.
