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 - Pretty Good

    Winds are offshore on South Coast this morning, and conditions are clean with Northerlies around 10 - 15 knots. Swell has continued to wind back, with surf around 1' at Middleton, with a few bigger down through Day St. to Goolwa. Waits and Parson's are your best bet for a shortboard wave today at around 1 - 2' and clean. It will probably get blown out by strong NW winds soon anyway, with gusts possibly over 30 knots. A W-SW change will turn winds cross-onshore at some stage after lunch, bringing choppy surf. The forecast predicts this won't happen until late arvo / evening.
