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

    There's a light offshore Nor-wester on the South Coast again this morning and conditions are glassy early. Swell is a bit funky, small and coming from about three directions, but it is surfable. The Middleton - Goolwa stretch has surf around 1-2' but it's a bit reformy and slow, so bring plenty of foam. Waitpinga or Parson's wil be worth a look for shortboarders at around 2', with occasional bigger sets. The forecast predicts onshore SE winds for the arvo, but there should be a bit of a window for the next few hours of clean conditions.
