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 chlly on the South Coast this morning, but winds have swung back to the NE at around 7 knots and conditions are clean. Swell is carrying a bit of Easterly wobble with surf around 3 - 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2 - 3' around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger, winds will favour Parson's. The breeze looks like it'll pick up to around 15 knots during the morning, but should tend more offshore Northerly after lunch. Exposed stretches may get a bit blowey but hopefully it'll be just enough to straighten up the swell a bit.
