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 on the South Coast again this morning with light offshore North winds and clean, conditions - but conditions are on the turn. Swell has eased a bit with waves around 4' along the Middleton - Day St. stretch and a few bigger sets down toward Cliffs and Goolwa. There are clean 3' waves around at Chiton / Gap, Waits and Parson's will be bigger. NW winds are forecast to pick up during the morning to around 20 knots, then 25 knots before shifting to the West then SW after lunch. Exposed spots will cop it from the wind but part sheltered spots like Middleton Bay should hold out for most of the day.
