  Quite a lot.

I surf my Frenzy, both for fun and out of necessity when I come in from pulling heavy-rigged rods for sharks, bull redfish, spanish mackerel, etc. Frenzy is a good boat for in the surf, but not so much a Tarpon, it's bow has a habit of pearling.

Generally if I am going offshore in my Tarpon 160, I am picking a really calm day where I don't have to deal with surf, and because of the calm sea I can go out far, so therefore I want a longer, faster boat. If it isn't as calm, I am going to stay closer to shore anyway, so I take the Frenzy, along with a very minimal amount of gear. Still, with the Frenzy, the only times I have wiped out were when I was surfing for fun. In a Frenzy, even in decent (by GOM standards) if you get through the surf as quickly as possible on your way out and back in, you aren't going to have to worry about wiping out.
