Surf Report Info

Region: Chiton Rocks

Reporters location:

Coastalwatch surf reporters are the saltiest locals around. Part fish, part shark, part human, they live for the waves and are usually more local than the locals. They’ll be up before dawn waiting for first light to reveal the days surf conditions and can sense a change of wind from a sparrows fart. Each reporter covers a region of coastline which includes many number of surf spots and beaches. Please consider there may be possible variations between this report and your local spot due to differences in orientation to the coast and any local idiosyncrasies that may also effect the swell and weather patterns.

    Today's rating - Excellent

    Conditions are clean on the South Coast early, with offshore NW winds around 5 - 10 knots and well lined up swell. Surf is a good 3 - 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2' around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will be picking up some good sized sets, Waits will favour the West in the wind up toward the point. The window may be tight this morning, with a fresh westerly change about to swoop in, and strengthening NW winds ahead of it. The surf may well be blown out by morning smoko, and it'll be a write off after lunch with gale force W-SW winds. Swell will build all day, so sheltered spots are worth a look later once the wind has swung to the W-SW.

Marine Outlook

Onshore South winds around 20 knots are making a mess on the South Coast this morning, wasting what would otherwise have been good swell. Surf is 4 - 5' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 4' around at Chiton / Gap- but it's all mush. It's just not gonna get any better today, especially once the wind picks up to around 30 knots after lunch. There's really nowhere you can hide when the wind's blowing this way, in reality it's probably a good day to give it a miss.
