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

    Easterly winds at 12 knots are creating typical summer lumpy conditions on the South Coast this morning. Swell is up a bit, with 3' surf along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch and peaky 2' waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's qill be bigger, with wind favouring Parson's and perhaps a few other sneaky spots around that side of Victor. The breeze is forecast to gradually tend more onshore SE-S at 15 - 20 knots, so the lumps will probably have turned to mush by early arvo.
