loop knots are great when you're fishing in still or calm water as it tends to impart more movement to the fly...IMHO...in a pounding surf I would opt for an improved clinch or Palomar...easy to tie and certainly strong enough for the conditions you're likely to encounter.
Orvis website and Grog Knots have animated how-tos...good luck!

Thanks for the reply. Both of those along with the uni to uni are my go to knots. However, with the improved clinch I go through the eye twice, make the wraps, then through the double eye loop and back through the wrap loop before pulling tight.
