Anna Maria Island surfing and wake boarding are popular pass time for locals and visitors alike.
Anna Maria Island Surfing Spots
Locals know the best surfing is off of the White Avenue beach access in the city of Anna Maria. The floor of the Gulf of Mexico offers very favorable surfing conditions. The surf isn’t world class, but on rough days all levels of surfers can be found on the beach. White Avenue becomes a hub of activity for Anna Maria. White Avenue does have some public parking. Find spots about 4-6 minutes walking distance from the access.
Additionally you can find great surfing in Bradenton Beach. Head to the area known as three piers just north of Coquina beach. Here you’ll find a few surfing quality waves.
Additionally, 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.
