The waves are breaking but they are spilling, and not steeped walled up boomers, they break and then backing off. I I was in this situation, I would flip the boat upright, lie on the back deck and swim the boat in like a surfboard. He only needs to move the boat 30 yds or so to be out of the major impact zone. Then hang on to the back and ride the whitewash in. I seriously recommend kayakers practicing paddling their craft while lying on the back deck. if a huge wave comes through you can sink the stern, let go and hope for the best. Not much point hanging on a boat in waves and hoping for your friends to come and get clobbered.
