Wetfly - You might try the big rod in the surf sometime. The length allows less interference with incoming waves. I never found a fly rod to very usefull at the beach untill i tried the big gun - 100' casts with ease.
Also if you are positioned right and there is some sideways rip current going, you can spey cast!
I'm rarely a surf fisherman, but the big rod does open up some opertunities.
ps - Not an expert, But if you ever plan any fishing to your north (ct/cape cod) I can help you figure out a few things spey. I will be there in a few weeks, in WY right now.
