The Surfing Waves Surf Spot Map Widget is now Available!
We are pleased to announce that the new Surfing Waves Surf Map Widget is now available. You can now embed your local surf spot map on your own web page. It's quick, easy, and straight forward to use - and it's free!
Here's a quick guide explaining how to add the surf spot to your page.
Find the map you would like on your web page:
Navigate our surf atlas until you find your local region. You'll find an "embed button" underneath the main surf map display area. If there is no "embed button", continue to navigate through the surf spot regions until it shows. (It will only show on pages where it is possible to add surf spots to the map.) For this example we are using the San Diego County Surf Map.
Select the dimensions and generate the code:
The next step is to click the "embed button" and then enter your desired dimensions. There's a minimum width of 150 for the map, but for better detail, a larger map is preferable. On a small scale, the buttons and logo on the map will obscure the surf spots. Choose the width and height that best suits your web page. (You'll have to read and accept the standard terms and conditions before generating the embed code.) Once you are done, click the generate button to get the maps' embed code.
Once the map has been embedded on your web site, it will display to everyone who sees your web page. Using the widget, you can add spots to the map, improving both your map and the original on Surfing Waves. Here's how the map looks when it has been embedded:
Let us know how you get on, we be happy to receive any feedback or suggestions on how to improve the widget.
