The South Coast is again looking great this morning with light offshore North winds, smooth seas and well lined up swell. It’s hardly pumping but Middleton still has a few 1 – 2′ waves, with occasional 2′ sets breaking down through Day St. to Cliffs and Goolwa. Again, Waits and Parson’s are probably your best shot for a shortboard wave this morning, both clean and around 2′ with occasional bigger sets. The wind will stay offshore all day, and it probably won’t get much over 10 -15 knots. There’s also a good chance the breeze will drop out mid arvo for a glass off. Wave heights probably won’t change a lot today. Check the surf forecast to see how the weekend is looking. An update is due tonight.
It’s looking good on the South Coast again this morning with light offshore North winds, but swell has dropped overnight. Middleton is back to the 1 – 2′ range, with occasional 2′ sets breaking down through Day St. to Cliffs and Goolwa. Waits and Parson’s are probably your best shot for a shortboard wave this morning, both clean and around 2′ with occasional bigger sets. The wind will stay offshore all day, but it may be up around 20 knots at times. Exposed stretches may become a touch blown out if the wind gets up, but hopefully, it stays in the 10 – 15 knot range. The swell looks like it might be smaller after lunch, so grab what you can this morning. Check the latest surf forecast to see how the next few days are shaping up.
More winter goodness on the South Coast with great-looking weather, glassy seas and just a puff of offshore North wind. The swell is not huge but it’s well lined up, with surf around 2′ at Middleton and a few 2 – 3′ sets breaking down through Day St. and toward Cliffs / Goolawatu. There is some swell pushing in up the Knight’s / Boomer end of the Port Elliot stretch and there are occasional 2 – 3′ sets, but Giton is a bit inconsistent at 1 -2′. Waits and Parson’s will be the pick for more experienced surfers at 3′ with bigger sets, both glassy early. A northerly will start to pick up soon, and the breeze may top 20 knots by mid-morning. Open stretches may get a bit blown out if the wind gets that strong, and the swell will probably drop after lunch. Get on it early if you can. Check the latest surf forecast to see how the next few days are shaping up.
Winds are light offshore from the North and conditions look good on the South Coast again early this morning. There are clean, well lined up 2 – 3′ waves between Middleton and Goolwa, with 1 – 2′ waves getting in around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson’s will be a bit bigger for experienced surfers, and both beaches will be clean. Winds look pretty good for the rest of the day, tending NE and probably not much over 10 knots for most of it. Some east in the breeze may add some lumps but fingers crossed the Northerly prevails. Check the latest surf forecast to see how the next few days are shaping up.
It’s looking good on the South Coast early with very light offshore North winds and clean, well lined up swell. Middleton has waves around 3′, and there are a few bigger sets breaking down toward Day St., Cliffs and Goolwa. A few 2′ waves are getting in around at Chiton / Gap, Waits will be bigger but probably struggling to hold the sets. The rest of the day looks pretty good with winds remaining out of the North – NE and probably not topping 5 – 7 knots. The swell should stick around too, and the weather looks alright. Get amongst it. Check the latest surf forecast to see how the next few days are shaping up.
A light West wind has helped to smooth the sea on the South Coast this morning, despite the expectation it’d be onshore. There’s still some swell left too, Middleton is around 2 – 3′ and looking reasonably clean under the full moon. There are a few bigger sets breaking down toward Cliffs and Goolwa, but the swell is not quite as lined up down there. A few 2′ waves are getting in around at Chiton / Gap, Waits will be bigger and part sheltered up toward the Point. The BoM predicts all sorts of scenarios for the wind, possibly NW, possibly onshore, or both separated by a few hours. Late arvo is a chance for WNW winds if onshores pop up in between. In any case, the wind probably won’t top 10 knots all day. Grab a few early if you can, it’s nowhere near as bad as expected. Check the new surf forecast to see how the next few days are shaping up.
The wind has dropped overnight and it’s back to a moderate westerly on the South Coast early. Conditions are still a bit bumpy from the wind overnight and yesterday, but the swell has held up alright. The Day St. – Goolwa stretch has surf in the 3 – 5′ range, and Middleton Bay is OK at 3 – 4′ and part-sheltered. It’s a bit wobbly between Victor and Port Elliot, The Dump has 1 – 2′ waves and it semi-clean, Chiton / Gap are bigger but not as clean. The wind should be out of the West for a few hours before swinging SW, the SSW after lunch. It probably won’t get much over 15 knots all day, but it’ll mess it up again as it swings dead onshore. There’s a few imperfect waves about this morning, might be the best of it. Check the new surf forecast to see how the next few days are shaping up.
Conditions are clean on the South Coast early with NW winds at 10 -15 knots. The swell is well lined up and a decent size, with 3 – 5′ surf between Middleton and Goolwa. There are 2 – 4′ waves between The Dump and Knight’s, with occasional bigger sets thumping in up the Boomer end of the beach. The wind may stay OK for a few hours but it’s on the turn – shifting W-SW then onshore after lunch at 20 knots. The swell should hold up all day, but quality will deteriorate as the wind swings cross-shore then onshore later. Check the surf forecast for the outlook heading into the weekend. Will update it later.
The wind has dropped to around 10 – 15 knots on the South Coast early, and it’s almost trying to swing offshore, tending WNW at 15 knots. The swell has a lot of west in it but it’s bigger with 2 – 3′ surf between Middleton and Goolwa. The Bay is part sheltered and semi-clean, so too is The Dump albeit with less size. There are 1 – 2′ waves between Chiton Rocks and Knight’s, Waits and Parson’s will be struggling to hold the swell. There may be other options around that size of Victor though. The BoM predicts WNW winds all day, remaining in the 10 – 20 knot range and possibly only 10 knots a lot of the time. The swell will lift as it tends more SW, and it’s worth keeping an eye on the swell magnets – especially in the vicinity of Port Elliot. If the wind stays where it is, there should be some clean, solid waves after lunch. Outlook for the rest of the week is in the latest surf forecast.
Offshore Northerly wind are creating clean conditions on the South Coast early, but the new swell is looking very west in direction. Surf is around 1 – 2ft at Middleton, and it’s not a whole lot bigger along the Day St – Goolwa stretch. Waits or Partson’s are your best hope for a shortboard wave this morning, but you’d have to be quick. The swell is on the rise and wave heights will lift during the day, but everywhere will be blown out by strong N-NW winds from mid-morning onward. Rain and more wind will arrive later, with conditions better for kiting or sailing than surfing. Outlook for the rest of the week is in the latest surf forecast.
