I'm looking to buy a decent starter surf fishing rod for my dad as a birthday gift. He used to enjoy surf fishing years ago but now has, according to my mom, really poor equipment. Surf fishing is entirely foreign to me and I am overwhelmed by the choices available to me! Please help!

Okuma Solaris 12' with a Shimano 6500 Baitrunner, spooled with #17 test. Don't forget the shock leader! #30-50 mono connected to the running line with an Albright knot.

I would go with the Okuma Solaris 12' as well, you won't be sorry. As far as reels, I use spinning and either a Penn SS series or a diawa emblem X-T are great in my opinion.
