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 light WNW winds. Swell is still a bit WSW in direction and rolling past a bit, with surf around 1 - 2' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, a bit bigger around at Waits and Parson's. The breeze probably won't get much over 10 knots for the next few hours, and hopefully swell will lift a bit during the day. NW winds are expected to pick up to around 15 - 20 knots mid - late arvo.
