In dumping surf conditions where the waves are very close together like we see in my part of the Great Lakes it is standard procedure to pop the skirt and hop out before you get to shore, then try and time it between waves to grab the bow toggle and run up the beach before you get dumped on. It's better than having your entire boat get beat up in the surf on rock beaches.
