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

    Winds are light offshore from the North on the South Coast this morning and conditions are clean early, but possibly not for long. Swell is a bit bigger and lining up nicely bigger, with 3 - 4' waves along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2 - 3' surf around at Chiton / Gap. The forecast predicts onshore South winds in the 10 - 15 knot range, and it's hard to say when they will show up. Once they do, conditions will quickly deteriorate and remain messy for the rest of the day.
