I love that display.  I used it on my last sailing trip.  It isn't accurate enough for daily planning, because it is based upon a model as opposed to site measurements.  So, what you find in a specific area may vary from what is shown.  But the patterns were very helpful to me.  You can tweak it a lot with right-click menus - especially in that area on the bottom left of the screen - and with a double-click you can zoom in.  You can also walk it back in time.  I was able to determine that it would be too dangerous to make an early May trip to the bottom of Baja - and, sure enough, if I had gone I'd hit several tropical storms.

PredictWind is a subscription service that blends models and very detailed site measurements to be useful for sailing (but it is nowhere as mesmerizing to watch.
