Corsica, as the whole Mediterannean area, has NO TIDES.
That means you can't get at a spot at low tide to check
the eventual underwater hazards. Instead, you'd rather have a look
when there's no swell. Note where the lone rocks and reefs are :
there's not much of them but once you'll have broken a board on it,
The indication of maximum wave heigt on this spot is only an indication (!).
Haven't surfed there myself. Thought, by a 1 meter swell i have seen 10 to 12 surfers at the peak.
Does that make a lot or few for the corsican standards ?
In my opinion, due to the strange fetch and hard-to-catch weather conditions that could be a lot.
There's not thousands of surfers in Corsica, maybe even not hundreds...
That builds up pretty mellow feelings indeed, as far as i've seen it.
If you happen to surf there, you might find yourself in
the middle of a bunch of friends surfing for the fun of it.
Corsica is mainly a country/mountain island and this very spot,
because it is located into one of the main cities, is among the easiest
to find. Get there to check the swell and enjoy your first surf in
Keep a low profile, thought, because corsican people are proud
people and, like any "latin" population, they are hot-blooded...
Just paddle in, smile and say hello.
