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

    Winds have swung onshore just in time for the weekend on the South Coast, with SW winds around 17 knots creating messy conditions. Surf is around 3 - 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2 - 3' surf around at Chiton / Gap. The forecast predicts winds will remain onshore at similar strength all day, swell will probably pick up a bit after lunch. Messy all day.
