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

    It's reasonably clean on the South Coast early with light SW winds and a lift in swell overnight. Surf is around 3' along the Middleton - Day St. stretch with a few bigger sets down toward Goolwa, and glassy 2' waves around at Chiton / Gap. The forecast predicts Westerly winds picking up during the morning, tending onshore SW at 20 knots after lunch. Swell will probably build some more during the day, so Middleton Bay / Point will probably be OK later, maybe even the Dump if swell is big enough late arvo.
