"Corners" breaks in both winter south swell season as well as during summer north swell season. However the waves character changes dramatically with the two swell directions.
In winter its a very fickle wave and likes a strong clean south swell to really fire. When its on its a favourite with goofyfooters ...... a thick intense barrel rifles across the reef into a distinct channel. Any west in the swell tends to shut it down near the end section but still popular in these conditions with bodyboarders. Length of ride 40+ metres. Wear some rubber. Winter is best for intermediate to advanced surfers.
Summer is a different story. Much more of a fun wave. A hollow take-off section barrels for 20+ metres before slowing and offering 30+ metres of fun hotdogging through to an inside (mellow) closeout. A fun wave for all skill levels ..... even beginners.
"Corners" is surfable for 3 hours either side of high tide year round.
