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 - Average

    It's still onshore on the South Coast, with SSE winds around 15 knots continuing a week of slops this morning. Surf is around 3- 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, 2' around at Chiton / gap and no doubt bigger and just as sloppy around at Waits and Parson's. The situation isn't gonna improve with SSE winds at 15 - 20 knots forecast for the rest of the day. Try Middleton Bay / Point if you are absolutely desperate, otherwise give it a miss until maybe Sunday.
