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 - Average

    Onshore S-SE winds are still around 15 knots on the South Coast this morning, and conditions are bumpy. Surf is around 3 - 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and there's bumpy 2' waves around at Chiton / Gap. The wind will pick up a bit during the day to around 20 knots, so it'll stay pretty messy. Once again try Middleton Bay or possibly The Gap if you're desperate for a wave.
