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

    Looking good again on the South Coast this morning with light WNW winds and a lift in swell. Surf is around 4' along the Middleton - Day St. stretch with a few bigger sets down toward Cliffs and Goolwa. Chiton / Gap are around 2' and glassy with some bigger sets, Waits and Parson's will be solid and struggling a bit to hold the sets. Waits will favour the wind offering partial shelter down toward the point. Winds look good all day, tending more NW-N after lunch and not getting much over 10 - 15 knots.
