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

    Swell has come up overnight on the South Coast but so have onshores, and conditions are messy with SSW winds gusting around 25 knots . Surf is around 3 - 4' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2' around at Chiton / gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger, but quality will be dreadful. The forecast predicts winds will remain onshore all day but should ease from the South after lunch, back to 10 - 15 knots. Try Dribs Bay if you're desperate.
