That is the benefit of my little boat. I can launch off most any beach even Caspar. Your boat though will go thru pretty much anything, and driving a longer distance is nothing. The South side is probably fairly exposed to the North swell. I have stood on the cliffs at the town of Mendocino and watched the waves booming! For abs try the cove that the wreck of the Frolic is in. It is exposed, but there are few public entrances, as it is private property and cliffs. Heck if someone can't find abalone on the North Coast they are blind LOL
BTW my friend Jim (C-Dory) was out today kayak scuba diving out of Russian Gulch and said vis was 10-20ft with no surge. He brought one ling cod home for dinner.

Wheeleez are expensive and there are cheaper options out there. The biggest benefit of the Wheeleez is they are super light weight. I am happy with mine.
