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

    Conditions are clean on the South South Coast again this morning with 10 - 15 knot offshore North winds, swell is well lined up if a bit too WSW. Surf is around 2 - 3' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 1 - 2' around at Chiton / gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger, Waits may have a slight edge over Parson's. It should stay offshore and clean through the middle part of the day, but a Southerly change will arrive sometime during the arvo and chop it up.

    ...... Check out the Father's Day Special on Coastalwatch. A gift to stoke every surfing dad.
