SURFING OR WAKE BOARDING: That’s right I said surfing. White Avenue in Anna Maria City is fairly well known by locals to provide the best surfing in the area. The floor of the Gulf of Mexico offers very favorable surfing conditions. By no means is the surf world class but on rough days all levels of surfers can be found on the beach and White Avenue becomes a hub of activity for Anna Maria. Parking can be found at the end of White Avenue and a quick 4-6 minute walk gets you to the beach in flip flops. If your timing is really good you may get lucky enough to take part in a children’s surfing class. I have attached pictures of a surfing class that took part on White Avenue’s beach after about 2 straight days of above average surf in late July. Of course wake boarding can be good fun for all ages regardless of how high the surf is.
