South Coast

Winds are light from the SW and conditions are reasonably clean on the South Coast early, with just a bit of leftover wobble in the swell. Surf is around 3′ along the Middleton – Goolwa stretch, with cleanish 1 – 2′ waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson’s should be a tad bigger, winds will favour Waits in nest to the point. Winds will pick up during the morning and tend more onshore Southerly at 15 – 20 knots after lunch. There’s a bit of a window early but conditions will deteriorate once the wind kicks in.  Shred factor 6/10

South Coast

More Easterlies and more summer lumpiness the South Coast this morning with winds around 12 knots. Surf is  around 3 – 4′ along the Middleton – Goolwa stretch but it’s breaking all over the place, with lumpy 2 – 3′ waves around at Chiton / Gap.  Onshores will pick up to around  20 knots during the day so the arvo will maintain the sloppy conditions  everywhere. Swell will remain a similar size, so try Chiton or small Dump for a grovel. There’s also a slim chance again for a few sheltered spots somewhere out the other side of Victor.  Shred factor: 4/10

The dismal conditions continue the South Coast this morning with SE winds around 10 knots and sloppy waves. Surf is  around 3 – 4′ along the Middleton – Goolwa stretch with lumpy 2 – 3′ waves around at Chiton / Gap.  Onshores will pick up to around  20 knots during the day so the arvo will maintain the sloppy conditions  everywhere. Swell will remain a similar size, so try the Port Elliot stretch for a grovel, or punt on there being enough swell for a few sheltered spots somewhere out the other side of Victor.  Shred factor 4/10

We’re back to onshores on the South Coast this morning, and conditions are bumpy with southerlies around 10 knots. Surf is  around 3 – 4′ along the Middleton – Goolwa stretch with peaky 2′ waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson’s will be a bit bigger, but spoiled by lumpiness. Onshores will pick up 15- 20 knots during the day so the arvo will be sloppy evenywhere. Swell will remain a similar size, so Middleton Bay /  Point might be your best option for a grovel today.

South Coast

Winds are offshore at around 10 knots on the South Coast this morning, and conditions are clean first thing. Surf is still around 3 – 4′ along the Middleton – Goolwa stretch and lining up pretty well with clean 2′ waves around at Chiton / Gap. Waits and Parson’s will be bigger, possibly closing out on the bigger sets. You’ll want to be on it about now, as a Southerly change will arrive around lunchtime and turn winds onshore. Conditions will deteriorate pretty quickly after the wind swings, and the arvo will be messy.  Sorry for the late report, only just got power back on.
