article is geared towards someone looking for that perfect
gift for anyone that has a hobby that revolves around
water that is influenced by the tides. Those of you
that already know about tide watches most likely do
not need to read this because you probably already own
one but keep reading because you just might learn something.
The first and most obvious choice would be the fisherman.
People that fish in the ocean or anywhere that has a
tidal influence know all too well that certain species
of fish prefer to eat during certain tidal movements.
To them careful planning means the difference in catching
fish or not. For professional fishing guides knowing
what the current tide level is can make the difference
in a happy client!
Another great candidate for a tide watch is anyone
who uses any kind of boat in a tidally influenced area.
In some places in the world you just can not go anywhere
at low tide because there is no water! No one wants
to get stranded at low tide and then have to sit and
wait for the next tide change. In some places you might
not be able to get under the bridge at high tide. Just
a quick glance down at your tide watch and you will
never be guessing again!
Surfers are also another great choice for tide watches.
High tide and low tide both can have completely different
waves and to a surfer that can mean all of the difference
in the world. In fact one of the largest surfing board
companies in the world has their very own line of tide
watches made just for surfers. Check out Rip Curl Tide
These are just a few examples of people that could
definitely use a tide watch!
