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

    Great looking morning on the South Coast with light offshore NW winds and corduroy lines of swell. Surf is similar size to yesterday at around 2' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch with the odd bigger set, and 1 - 2' around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will offer a bit more size, the West in the wind will favour Waits. The forecast predicts NW-W winds at 15 knots shifting SW later, so the best of it will probably be this morning. Beachies between Middleton Point and Cliffs have been fun on the higher tide late morning over the last few days, may be similar today.
