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, and swell lining up pretty well. Surf around is 3' along the Middleton - Day St.stretch, with the odd bigger set down toward Goolwa. Chiton / Gap are around 1 - 2', Waits and Parson's will be a bit bigger with winds favouring the Point end of Waits beach. The forecast is a bit weird today, predicting onshore SW winds shifting light - moderate NW after lunch. The breeze may come up and add some bumps late morning, but keep an eye on it for a late one as winds tend cross-offshore and clean it up again.
