A lot of that is a matter of opinion. Lol.
Just get a reel that holds a good amount of 15-20lb test and a surf rod (9-12ft) with the appropriate specifications to match it.
As far as leaders go, academy and other sporting stores sell premades ones as well as bait shops.
A lot of it will just be trial/error and figuring out what you like. Txsharkfishing.com has some good advice on surf fishing.

Thanks for the input guys. What size Hooks do you use and do you use circle hooks or just the regular hooks. Also what about the leader mono or steel?

that really all depends on the style of fishing you plan on doing and what you are expecting to catch. I always bring at least 3-4 different styles of rods when I surf fish and many more different ways to rig each type of rod.

I bring a rod for wading, usually a trout rod. A long rod for casting chunk baits. A lighter shark rod for yaking small baits, and a large shark rod for yaking big baits.

Give us some input on what you plan on doing and maybe we can help out a little more. Also what does your budget look like? That will be a big factor in the gear we recommend

I have several trout/ red setups for artificial. I also have a couple short rods with penn 320 and 340. My 2 long surf rods have penn senators on them. I am looking at buying a kayak but don't know what would be best for the surf. How long, open, wide etc any suggestions would help. How far should i yak these baits out...I always fish surfside!!! (close to the house)

I am going on a over night trip to surfside with a couple buddies sep 3. (LABOR DAY)

Also what reel should I buy that fairly descent price for yaking the bait way out there. What kind of leader set-ups should I make/Buy I am pretty crafty so I wouldn't mind making my own.

I like my Daiwa SHA 50 and a 10' surfrod from FTU. I have 65# Suffex Braid and topped off with 50# mono and use Mustad 16/0 Circle Hooks, Leader 400 mono or cable.
