Wind Power Surf Shop on Lake Winnebago

The Weather Center is owned and operated by Wind Power Surf Shop in Fond du Lac, WI. Wind Power has been involved in teaching and promoting wind powered sports for over 25 years.

The Weather Center provides up to the minute observations and graphs for Current Conditions and Historical Summary data. Sailing Conditions Assessments, Launch Recommendations and a Weather Summary are made based on current observations.

“These Tools provided by Wind Power can be used to determine best equipment size. After a good day of riding at Wind Power look at the history log for the wind speed and start a log of equipment size versus wind speed & direction for the day.”
