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 Coast early with offshore NE winds around 10 knots, and swell lining up well again. Surf is around 2' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch with the odd bigger set, and 1 - 2' around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will offer a bit more size, the East in the wind will favour Parson's slightly. The forecast predicts offshores all day but gusts may be over 20 knots at times. Hopefully it won't get that strong.
