Big Storms Bring Big Surf To Anna Maria Island

Thunderstorms pounded the gulf coast this week, and brought surfers from all over Florida to Anna Maria Island.  Anna Maria Island does not have the best surfing in the world but, when a big storm is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico the waves get larger, and the surfers come out to take full advantage of ideal surfing conditions on Anna Maria Island.

White Avenue in the City Of Anna Maria, and the three jetties in Bradenton Beach are very well known local surfing spots.  Yesterday I headed down to Bradenton Beach to check out the action, the surf was pretty rough but surfers were out there ripping it up.

If you’re looking for a good spot to go surfing, or just a place to chill on the beach contact an Anna Maria Island Vacation Rental Specialist today.  We have beach house rentals on White Avenue, in Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and all over Anna Maria Island. Contact Island Real Estate today and book your island getaway!
