Isle of Palms

Experience Levels (Beginner Advanced, Expert)

Isle of Palms permits kiteboarding in those areas less visited by beach goers.

Basically, stay well away from either side of the pier (1 mile minimum distance) where most people are. Do not launch at the Charleston County Park or anywhere near the (Seacabins) Pier.

IOP strictly enforces the 100 foot rule: all sport participants (kiters, surfers, fishers, boaters, etc.) must keep a 100′ distance from any person in the ocean. Here, beach goers have the right of way.

From Memorial Day – Labor Day, all kiteboarders must stay at least 100 yards from the water’s edge once through the launch zone.

An AI-Powered Weather App With Guaranteed Accuracy

While weather apps abound, the Tempest app leverages real-time data, advanced forecast modeling and the oversight of in-house meteorologists. Data from each Tempest is processed with advanced machine learning which checks the information for accuracy, allowing us to apply daily calibrations and ultimately improve your forecast over time.

All About the Data

Accurate measurements from your location, along with data from other Tempest Systems, flows to our data processing center. There we also collect ALL other relevant weather data, including measurements from satellites, aircraft, radars and other surface weather stations. Our process ultimately yields standardized data and a real-time analysis product. Not every measurement is of equal value (e.g. wind ‘shadows’ affect how wind data is utilized) but our big data analytics adjust accordingly, meaning every Tempest System can make a difference.

Hyper-Local Forecasting

Our forecast system initializes with the ECMWF, the highly acclaimed European global forecast model, the best of NOAA’s forecast models and WeatherFlow’s own in-house modeling suite . Over key areas, WeatherFlow’s operational forecast system (WF WRF) assimilates the most valuable observations into this powerful baseline to provide detailed regional forecasts.

Do something about the Changing Weather

Tempest data, along with all our real-time useful information, is part of data sets which are shared with the National Weather Service (NWS-NOAA) and other met agencies across the world, supporting their mission of predicting dangerous weather and warning the public of potential risks. As forecasting becomes more difficult and weather patterns increasingly unpredictable, each Tempest helps contribute to a better global forecast.
