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

    Winds are offshore from the NW at around 10 - 15 knots on the South Coast early and conditions are clean, but it won't last. Surf around is around 5' along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, clean with 2 - 3' waves around at Chiton / Gap. NW winds will start to pick up from about now onward, and may blow up to gale force by morning smoko. The rest of the day will be blown out but 35 knots NW-W winds, but keep an eye on sheltered spots later today as swell will build over the next 24 hours.
