How can you tell if there will be enough tide to swim or launch? Let's talk tidal heights, drying heights and how to be sure there'll be enough tide for us. Understanding tide heights and times are a key component to avoiding disappointment on a trip to the beach for a swim or watersports.
Websites I used for this video:
tidal graphs from easytide.com

Outdoor swimming is a fantastic activity to get involved in, but sometimes just getting started can be challenging - what to wear, where to go, who to do it with are all questions that my playlist “Get Involved with Outdoor Swimming” addresses https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrBM9GuZgXX6dGkhGdXU1TPD2N69EA_UU
The Outdoor Swimming community is extremely diverse and welcoming and there are new friends waiting to meet you. Hope to see you in the water sometime soon.
