Most guys use an intermediate line to get below the chop. I'm a floating line guy myself and only switch to sinking lines if I really need to.
In this picture I'm using a 10wt floating line on a 10', 8wt rod
I like that rig in the surf because I have the line control to make long mends over the breakers. Not the style that most people use, but it works for me
Here's an excellent post by Mark in the FAQ sub-forum http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...hing-surf.html
