What is this guy, a 1980’s workout apparatus? Because Mick Corbett well and truly looks like the Stairmaster.
Shipstern’s Bluff is notorious for not only being one of the beefiest slabs in the world, but also for its unkind, uncaring step in the face, one that always seems to show its face at the worst possible moment. If you want to surf Shippies, you have to learn to embrace the step. Mick Corbett has done that and then some.
While the average man launches off the step and lands off kilter, Mick uses his mass as a stabilizing force to land flat and maintain his line. This enables him to traverse the trickiest of ledges at one of the world’s scariest waves. So kudos Mick, and keep pounding those meat pies!
