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

    Onshores have eased on the South Coast, but conditions are still bumpy with SSE winds around 10 knots . Surf is around 3 - 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2' around at Chiton / gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger, but no cleaner. The forecast predicts winds will be light onshore this morning, before going light and variable after lunch. Some new swell may lift wave heights a bit later, and it may be lumpy / glassy mid arvo.

Marine Outlook

We're finally back to offshores and clean conditions on the South Coast this morning, with NNE winds around 5 knots. but smallish swell Surf is around 2' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and Waitpinga or Parson'sare probably a better bet for a shortboard wave today. The forecast predicts winds will pick up a bit to around 10 - 15 knots this morning, but it won't be strong enough to blow it out. Should be clean and offshore all day.
