Extreme Spots Database goes live
10 Mar, 2017 | Reef
 


WAVEFRONT.ru launches the Extreme Spots Database. The database isn’t limited only to water sports and can be used for other extreme sports as well.

The database is available for everyone and doesn’t require registration for searching and viewing the information. Registered users have access to additional options - they can add and edit spots, comment at spots pages, control their profiles and use the portal’s forums.

Some kitesurfing/surfing spots in Cyprus have already been added to the database and can serve as an example. Any contribution to the portal's development - comments, pointing out errors or inaccuracies, suggestions for improvements - would be most welcome!
