Wind and Weather
iKitesurf is an extremely useful resource for all of your forecast and condition monitoring needs. I recommend buying a subscription and getting to know this site. If you want to buy or sell used gear this is the place to go for that too!
Wind Guru also contains a large amount of wind and weather data to help you plan a session or trip.
Here is a useful map for looking up tide and water temperature in your region.
