 Access

Once you hit the only stoplight light in Corolla you can turn right and hit any beach access to check the surf. Due to the shifting sandbars, the good breaks seem to change with the bigger swells. Tends to be bigger tword the southern end of the town. It is just about all public beach and anyone who tells you different, just keep walking to the water. There are no crowds anytime, just some tourists to dodge in the surf. Sharks are around, but usually keep to themselves. When it's good, there is nobody around. Get some!

Atmosphere

Corolla is a very laidback area with a very friendly vibe. There are a few hardasses who think that no one can surf there except for them. Those guys are savage tool boxes and everyone knows it. Catch some good waves and have some fun while you are in town.

Corolla - Corolla is worse than Virginia Beach, I wouldn't suggest trying to find surf there. Usually a dead closeout.
