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 light offshore North winds, but it's very cold again with air around six degrees. Surf around is 2 - 3' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, with 1' surf at Chiton and Waits and Waits / Parson's probably a bit bigger. The window of clean surf might not last long, as onshore S-SW winds are forecast to kick in, possibly by mid morning. The onshores probably won't get much over 10 - 15 knots, but that will well and truly be enough to make a mess of it. Brave the icy conditions and get what you can early.
