One of a paddler's main concerns when surf kayaking is figuring out how to launch from the beach. Being able to get into your kayak and paddle through the waves en route to surfing them can be a daunting task. Before getting into your kayak survey the ocean. Find the best place to launch your kayak from the beach. Get into your kayak just past where the water washes onto the beach. Push out into the water and paddle out off the sand. Look for an opportunity to paddle between the waves, around them, or over them. Be patient.
