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 not looking too bad on the South Coast early with 5 - 10 knot WNW winds, clean conditions and a lift in swell overnight. Surf is around 4 - 5' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2 - 4' between The Dump and Knight's. Unfortunately it looks like it will soon become blown out, with Westerly winds picking up to 25 knots then shifting SW after lunch. Sheltered spots will be worth a look mid arvo.
