Welcome to Lakescaster. I hope this application is helping you better understand surfing conditions on the Great Lakes as well as providing you the most optimal experience with checking the waves and planning your surf sessions.
An online and open-source application to check surfing conditions at various Great Lakes beaches. My goal is to build a community centric platform where you (the users) are the contributors to the application's success.
The more I get help from contributors, the faster the platform will grow. Please fork this repository and submit pull requests accordingly and I will review them as quickly as possible. If you have not already realized, I have built this app using the Laravel PHP and React JS frameworks.
