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

    Looking good again on the South Coast this morning with light offshore N-NW winds and clean conditions. Swell has eased a bit but it's well lined up, with Middleton - Goolwa around 4'+. There are 3' waves around at Chiton / Gap, Waits and Parson's will be bigger and still probably closing out on the sets. Swell will ease heading into the weekend but winds look good all day, remaining offshore in the 10 - 15 knot range and keeping it clean.
