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

    Once again it's looking good on the South Coast this morning with 5 knot offshore North winds and clean conditions. Surf along the Middleton - Goolwa is around 3', Chiton / Gap are 1 - 2' with Waits and Parson's the best option for more experienced surfers at around 3 - 4'. Winds will be offshore all day and probably OK this morning, but the forecast predicts stronger NW winds after lunch. It may get a bit blown out later so grab the best of it this morning.
