 Additional Information

Take the drop, pull into the barrel and aim for the light. Don't drop in and don't look sideways at anyone. If you don't have a sound knowledge of tides don't even think about surfing this wave.
This break has a very sharky reputation (not suprisingly)

Atmosphere

Psycho, scary locals and treacherous rips. When this place breaks the locals hit it hard; boats come from everywhere. There are very few places that work in the conditions required for this spot.

General

Hollow, powerful barrel. Hollow, powerful barrel. Fifteen years ago you could have had this wave to yourself. If it is breaking you will struggle to get a wave if you don't know the locals. You'll be forced to sit wide and pick up the leftovers.

yo - corsair is da bomb , love the joint live and surf @ 13th and its the only thing that comes close ta beacon on its day in vicco .. def. had some of the best left pits of my life out here , crowds are a pain in the arse but its 09 so what do you do ?/

mad - we didnt know if the dredging would stuff up corsair so we went on a couple trips over there during summer. made sure conditions were ok - good. and we scored some serious size, sets out the back were being charged and ripped, i saw some guys get smashed in the barell of some 6ft at least sets, honest. we just stuck around crystals and scored smaller but suckier pits. wasnt fully linking up, but still epic. oh yeah, counted over 32 boats those days. thats about 90 people in the line up.
