Inaccurate wave height
Hello,I am a off shore fishing man,I download and installed premium last month,almost 1 month use the software to track the waves for safety,but I find it not accurate at all.Sometime 1 hour forecast shows waves hight 0.2 swell 0.1 m,but it is huge diffierent when we on the ocean,I estimate it has a height of at least 0.5 meters. It is very dangrous for us. So,I looking for a refund！！！ And I suggest that sea wave data is related to life safety, please provide accurate data as much as possible.

Do you know that Windy does not make any forecast but just shows the data provided by ECMWF, NOAA and DWD as it is considered as the good one and covers the globe? Have you checked the predictions of these 3 models? There might be better local wave forecast providers but you do not say where you encountered those poor wave height estimates, probably not far from sea shore.
Windy wave layers don’t prevent to rely on local conditions that people at sea must be familiar with, such as local currents, seabed details and coast line shape in addition to local winds which all have a great influence on the height and shape of waves.
