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

    It's looking good again on the South Coast this morning with light offshore North winds and well defined swell. Swell is up a tad with surf around 3' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch with the odd bigger set, and 2' around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will offer a bit more size, possibly closing out on the bigger sets. You'll want to get on it this morning, the forecast predicts winds will be light and variable for a few hours before switching to onshore SE-S at 10 - 15 knots. Conditions will become bumpy / sloppy once the onshores kick in, and options will be limited.
