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
