Looks like a really nice outfit for bream, flathead and whiting on a relatively calm day.

Gary Howard makes a very nice rod, I picked up a 13'6" surf classic just before Christmas.

For bait fishing with Alveys - I would get a reel with drag and a stiffer rod - easier to set the hook and control the fish - for beginners.

For lures or lures/bait fishing - spin outfit would be an easier solution.

Length. If I hold the rod in my hands  on the beach  - I prefer rods up to 10" , if  in rod holder - at least 12".
