If you're a watersports enthusiast who regularly takes part in activity close to the shoreline then the Met Office would like to hear from you.

The Met Office is running an on-line survey until 3 December to better understand how the weather affects your sport and how it can improve its forecasts to better meet your needs and improve your safety.  

They particularly want members of the public who undertake the following activities: angling (from a boat), kite surfing, water-skiing, surfing, power boating, scuba-diving, sailing, kayaking or rowing.  

The Met Office will use this information to develop new content that improves safety, for example forecasting whether there is an increased risk of a rip current at a site under particular weather conditions.    

Take part in the survey now.
