Best beaches for beginners, Pacific Palisades to Pt. Mugu

I was watching some novice kayakers at Leo Carrillo State Beach (November 8) and they got pretty beat up in the surf. They never did make it out. I'd be looking for a beach to try where the surf is fairly flat on a consistent basis. I recognize that "consistent" and the ocean are not always compatible concepts. What I want to do is get out and paddle around kelp beds to get my sea legs, and then branch out for exercise, fishing, and touring.Thanks,JohnSee More
