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

    Winds are light offshore from the NW on the South Coast this morning, and conditions are clean early. Swell has eased off a bit overnight, with 4 - 5' waves along the Middleton - Goolwa stretch, and 2 - 3' waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson's will be bigger, struggling a bit to hold the sets but some good sized slabs in between. The forecast predicts W-NW winds in the 10 - 15 knot range for the rest of the day, so it'll stay generally clean. Swell should stick around for the rest of the day.
