Why isnt www.watersportweer.nl working in this period?

I just read www.watersportweer.nl is a website/ source only working during the Watersport "season". I have to give compliments it is by far one of the most accurate free windpredictors! From my experience before and after the summer it is a hard period to find right numbers (windprediction), but watersportweer.nl was spot on every time (when it was online).

Now I ended some weeks ago in the middle of the waddenzee, without wind. Thanks to the unreliable prediction of windguru/windfinder... I had to swim back and had to be rescued by a fellow windsurfer (Jan Wolters)

Why is the best site offline in a period when other sites are not reliable???? I hope some day watersportweer.nl is online for the whole year, without any break... The fanatical watersportsmen would be grateful I can guaranty that!

    dag erik,

    Beste Ingolf,

    Dank voor uw e-mail. We zijn verheugd dat u veel gebruik maakt van watersportweer en we hopen dat u dit in de toekomst blijft doen.
    Op dit moment zijn we bezig met een restyling van deze site. Tot die tijd kunt u gebruik blijven maken van de gratis door ons verstrekte GFS en ECMWF windkaarten.
    We adviseren u de site in de gaten te houden in verband met aanpassingen. Komende winter kunt u op een vernieuwde site rekenen!

    Met vriendelijke groet,

    Annelies Mosch
