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

    Winds are onshore from the South at 17 knots on South Coast this morning, and conditions are messy. Underlying swell is fairly straight and well formed, but surf is mushy at 4 - 5' from Middleton to Goolwa. There are sloppy 2 - 4' waves between The Dump and Boomer, but you can safely rule out Waits or Parson's today. The forecast predicts winds will ease and tend SE-E after lunch, still not ideal but is may open up a few options the other side of Victor late arvo.
