The St Croix Legend 10'6" is a nice rod. What you should look for is not really so much the line class but the lure weight. If the rod handles a heavy lure or weight it'll probably be pretty stiff and won't load a light weight well in a cast. Pick the lure weight class that best matches the the size of weight you intend to be casting. I think 1-2oz is a bit light for surf.
