Regional Surf Report


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 - Good

    Light East winds have added a bit of a wobble to the swell on the South Coast again this morning, but overall conditions are clean. Surf is around 3' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and glassy 1 - 2' waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger, with winds favouring Parson's. The forecast predicts winds will remain out of the East in the 10 knt range for the rest of the day.
