The Trifoiler demands "quality" winds and the following site is the nicest format and and best forecast that I have found:

www.intellicast.com

enter your location and then click

FORECAST --> Winds

No more interpreting isobar gradients. The format gives actual wind vector map and the windspeed is a color code overlay. 6 hour intervals on forecast going out 24 to 30 hours.

Green is good for foiling

FYI, the image below is live and updates every 6 hours.

In the Wind map that I previously posted, it seems that it keeps updating itself in real time. The url that I used must be the 18 hours in the future forecast.

That is a cool site too. I will compare them over the next couple weeks in terms of real time and forecast accuracy.
