Surf Report South Central Coast SA

by Peter Mariner
  • 1/08/2014 5:50 AM | Report

    Gale force WSW winds that lashed the South Coast all night are still at it, with giant, treacherous conditions anywhere even slightly exposed. Your best bet is to sniff around sheltered spots close to Victor today, but even Chicken Run may be worth a look early - at least until the winds swing. Surf along the Port Elliot stretch is in the 6'+ range, but even the Dump is too wild and wooly. As winds shift more Southerly and swell eases, even the sheltered spots will cease to be an option. If you can find somewhere out of the wind with some sneaky waves before lunchtime, that'll be your best shot.
