If you plan to do much surfing in beach break I think a sit-on-top makes a lot of sense. Ocean Kayaks seem to be very popular along the East coast (I have never owned one).

When surfing in shore break if one capsizes it is often too shallow to set up to roll. One can get pretty seriously spanked in a SINK before bailing out. With a sit-on-top you just get out of its way and swim it in to shore, then get back on top.
