Visitor Reviews of Anna Maria Island

Angelina from UNITED STATES writes:

I consult this site for surf winds and wave height as a measure for water stillness to swim. Since I have to drive a bit it is helpful to know this before driving all the out to the island. Swimming in the open sea water does not begin to compare to enclosed chlorine filled Olympic size pool. Love to be out in the open Swimming w fish.

I would like if website would display in increments of less than .5 feet.
More importantly is the accuracy. Drove out here today, the surf is pretty high, perhaps well over 1 ft, the beach flag is yellow, yet the website is showing blank, which I have interpreted as zero. Truly disappointed.
Thank you

[Editor replies. Angelina, this site is really designed only for surfers and so we do not report things that are of no interest to them like very small waves that are close together. To view everything our model predicts about the sea state, including the small details of more interest to swimmers, look here instead: and look for Anna-Maria-Key-Bradenton-Beach-Tampa-Bay-Florida. I think that forecast was about right for Friday]
