Tuesday July 29th Anna Maria Island 8:30am Waking up to steady onshore wind and small knee high crumblers. If you were not expecting much, then you won't be too disappointed. Only knee high, but there is plenty of rain heading towards the coast so hopefully we'll get a small increase with the approaching energy. Look for the small wind swell to stick around today and will fizzle out by later tomorrow. Kiters will find plenty of ripe conditions today and already this morning we are seeing some solid wind numbers. Not much else out there for the GC at this time, but we are finally heading into an active tropical period. We have 2 storms we are currently watching as they make their way across the Atlantic, and possibly into the Carib? We'll just have to wait and see. So for today look for a slow increase in the wind swell and petering out over night. Local tides today L-7:27am, H-1:38pm, L-8:35pm. The weekend ahead looks flat so get out there today if you can. Have a terrific Tuesday. ----Tommy D. Gulf Temp: 90
