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

    There's a small window on the South Coast this morning with offshore North winds around 10 knots and clean conditions- but it won't last. Surf around is 4 - 5' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, with 2 - 3' waves around at Chiton / Gap. Strong NW winds are on the way, possibly near gale force as an approaching cold front sweeps the coast. The change may arrive anytime from mid morning onward, and exposed spots looks like getting destroyed by 30 - 40 knot West winds. Once the Sou-wester kicks in sheltered spots might be worth look throughout the afternoon.
