Default 6wt for kayak fishing

Just wondering if I will be under-gunned with a 6wt for small salt species either fishing from the shore or a kayak? The wife and I have a trip planned down to Costa Rica in mid-March (we have been to this location before) and if the surf is not good I was thinking of throwing in my 6wt and some salt flies for those days I am not surfing. Just wondering if I will be frustrated with the 6wt, I have been watching for sales/used 8wt setups, but am trying to figure out if it is worth having an 8wt sitting around that gets used only a day or two a year (I could use the money for a new trout rod that would get 40-50 days a year). Any input or feedback would be greatly appreciated as the only time I have fished in salt water was with my father-in-law for tarpon and we were using his 12wts.
