I am making tide charts for the following locations for 2021. Some locations will be *extremely* limited edition (20-30 copies) as I can only get very small volumes printed until I can better understand local demand. Charts are available for pre-order now, to be delivered approx late September 2020. Please keep an eye on Instagram and Facebook for release dates so you don’t miss out.

Each chart covers a full year of tide times and heights for the coastline in the areas listed. Most parts of the U.K. coastline have predictable semi-diurnal tides, which means when I create a chart it can cover a stretch of 30-40 miles in each area as the tide times are similar enough over the distance.
Some locations are special though! The Dorset coast, for example, has an amphidromic point along the coastline, causing local tide times to vary enormously just a mile or two apart along the coast. This is why my Bournemouth chart is specifically for Bournemouth only.
Would you like a tide wall chart for where you live? Do you have a local sea swimming community? Surfing group? Coasteering club? Or a lovely flappy dog who lives for a sandy stretch of beach? I am expanding to new locations each year, and always very grateful for suggestions. Tirelessly researching every single mile of U.K. coastline from my little patch of pebble beach is no replacement for local knowledge. I am very grateful for anything you can tell me about where you live and why you’d like a chart for your area. Please say email@example.com
Please also like and share my Instagram, Facebook page and website with anyone you think will be interested. The more people who know about my charts in your area, the more likely I am to be able to make them 🙂
I am considering bespoke chart commissions, but currently not able to offer them as they take a considerable amount of time and would be very expensive unfortunately, I hope to maybe be able to offer them from late 2021 onwards.
I am definitely considering getting a dog.
Places I almost made! And will probably do in 2022, let me know if you’re interested!
