You need to lay the kayak on its side, reach right out and "surf" in on the paddle blade. If the kayak "trips" on its chine and capsizes, you haven't put it far enough over on its side. You should be lying away from the beach, posssibly with your head in the wave, reaching over the back of the wave.
