Visitor Reviews of Anna Maria Key
“One of the few places on the west coast that will be surfable in the summer. The sandbar will create a rideable wave during periods near low tide. Longboards are rideable all year long. 9 footers are standard during the summer. Fall and winter are typically shortboard season although the water gets colder. I am running a 6'3" at that time. Pockets of surf all over. Tide dependant.”
