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 - Pretty Good

    Onshore SW winds are still gusting over 30knots on the South Coast early, but conditions should start to moderate during the day. Swell is still pretty big, and the Middleton - Goolwa stretch is just huge mush well over 6'. The Victor - Port Elliot stretch is has surf ranging from 2 - 6', with the Victor end offering partial shelter. Other spots near Victor sheltered from SW winds will be worth a look this morning. The wind and seas will back off this morning, and the breeze will tend more Westerly at around 20 knots mid arvo.
