Hi all,

im just getting into surfcasting and was wondering if 80-90m casts is far enough for surfcasting,
all my gear is, is a $25 12 foot rod from the warehouse which casts 100-200g and my dads old egg beater reel which has about 140m of 25lb line on with about 20m of 40lb line as leader which leaves the reel full, and im using 6oz brakouts, im just getting annoyed as people tell me you have to cast over the last wave to get the fish but i can never cast out far enough :(
Any hints or clues to increase distance????

Cheers
