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

    Looking good again on the South Coast again this morning with 7 - 10 knot offshore North winds and clean conditions. Surf along the Middleton - Goolwa is around 4' with bigger sets, and there are 2 - 3' waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger and still probably closing out on the sets. The forecast predicts N-NW winds will pick up during the morning and probably blow it out with gusts over 20 knots. You may get a window this morning for an hour or two, but once the wind comes up it'll be all over.
