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

    SW winds are around 17 knots on the South Coast this morning and conditions are a bit messy along exposed stretches from yesterday's blow. Surf around is 5'+ along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, with 4' waves around at Chiton / Gap and semi clean 2 - 3' waves at The Dump. Wind and seas will moderate during the morning, and mid arvo winds are forecast to kick back around to the NW. Keep an eye on Middleton Bay or the Dump - Railways stretch after lunch.
