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 - Excellent

    It's another great Autumn morning on the South Coast this morning, with 10 knot offshore NNW winds and another lift in swell overnight. Surf is around 3' along the Middleton - Day St. stretch, with some bigger sets down toward Cliffs and Goolwa. Waits and Parson's will be a bit bigger, both will be clean and offering a couple of options. The bad news is that strong offshores threaten to spoil the party soon, with NW winds to 25 knots blowing it out ahead of a SW change around lunchtime. It's hard to say how long you'll get this morning, but sheltered spots will be the only option after lunch.
