LB Shark Fishing

Hey guys hope everyone is enjoying the summer. I am looking for some help on putting together a shark outfit from the beach. I recently purchased a Torsa 30 which is the reel I intend to use. I understand this isn't a huge reel and I may be under gunned at times but I am fairly new to this game and would like to use some of the current gear I have. I guess my main question is about rod choice. I have been looking at the Avid Series surf rods 12'H rated for 6-16 oz. I think my options may be limited to a surf style rod, as my access to a kayak will be limited. Does anyone have any input on a certain make or model? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tight lines.

    If you can cast it 30-50 yards you will catch sharks.

    I use a Penn 555 and 12 foot rod I bought off ebay. I was using 30lb suffix mono but after I got spooled I got 65lb braid.
