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 have gone 'round to a light offshore Nor-wester on the South Coast overnight, but don't get too excited. A weekend of E-SE winds have left plenty of lumps, and the swell has faded and left wobbly 1 - 2' waves along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch. Chiton / Gap are peaky but only about a foot high, with Waits or Parson's a better option this morning. The forecast predicts onshore SE winds for the arvo, but they could start to arrive any time. Conditions will go back to the usual summer mush once the Nor-westers have fled, and it'll be small for the rest of the day.
