Wait for the good ones and kick out early was advice from Gerry Lopez.

Like carribe just said . You can maintain some speed and miss the bone zone at a beachbreak - sometimes!

Lately I've been making an effort to try to hit the lip and make a hard cutback on my longer 10' board. I think that looks so cool to hit the lip with a big board. Consiquently, the end of most of my rides are under water:) You don't get better without trying.
It may be overhead to you, but it's waist high to me.

So you're saying "my dead stop face plant" move is less than stylish?  ;)

I kick out when its over and not before. If I am not done, I bash the lip and kick out in the white water.
I like to maintain board speed when going over and paddle as soon as possible. We are not prone paddling, so try
to remain upright.
You need to have a good kick out option both frontside and backside. Learn both. 

I don't see why I would kick out early, unless
  Someone is in the way
  The guy deeper made it and I need to get out of the way   
   or something better is behind and no one is on it.

Wife just tole me to come home and deal with the bear. How much fun is that.

I believe the advice to kick out early from Gerry Lopez is to eliminate getting caught inside and taking an unnecessary beating either from the wave closing out or approaching BEEG wans.

Ask Gerry!

   well, i don't have to learn how to kick out backside 'cause i don't go backside.  problem solved!

   i think several of you have hit on my real prob w/ kicking out: waiting too long to do it, with insufficient speed to get 'er done.  plus, well, i got shit for balance and despite lots of paddle bracing etc etc, i'm usually a floundering fool.
   if i can get pono's method down, i'd be happy.  i don't surf big waves and it sounds perfect for my go-to stuff.

Just for fun. Go up up to the schnozz. Do the Quasimodo squat with a bounce while grabbing the outside rail and put pressure on the inside rail. Voila a small wave pullout on a sup.

Also works in hollower conditions - sometimes! Mary's will never be the same.. 8)  8)

Adding to the excellent advice of kicking out earlier & really getting practiced with your bracing, I'd recommend going SHORT on your paddle if you haven't yet.  I was a couple inches overhead for a while, just went to forehead height & am amazed by the improvement in stability & control. 

It's really noticeable in that moment of instability when kicking out of a wave, and you're still in surf stance with the tail weighted... I used to fall a lot at the moment (let's be honest, still do).  However, the shorter paddle is that much easier to plant into the water and allow you to come out of the hole, so to speak.

WS, kicking the board back over the wave is necessary and actually the right way to go especially if you are surfing without a leash.  You do need to see where you are shooting the board, but it can save a swim (in which case you will be in the way of other surfers) and also avoid hitting someone on the inside with a loose board.

One of the most important surfing rules is, you must maintain control of your board at all times.  The line up would much rather have a good surfer who surfs without a leash but maintains control of his board than a Barney with a leash who throws his board indiscriminately.

A kickout is just an extended bottom turn and then just keep going out the back.
