There is a reason that both ends of gold beach have Jefferson flags flying high and proud.

7-9 feet of violent close sequenced breaking waves approaching Moss Landing harbor in 15-18 knots of wind.  One of those, "I see the harbor .... now I don't .... now I see it again ... now I dont ... oh shit, hopefully those speed boats coming in will see me ..."

The best formula to date is watch the water for 20 minutes before venturing out and determine if your skill level can handle it.
Is it calm inside but sheepish outside? Where is the marine layer? How much did either move in or out in those 20 minutes? Is the tide going in or out? How much of a difference did it make to the waves in those 20 minutes? Are you prepared to deal with a yard sale either going out or coming in? If you get in over your head how many others will you be putting at risk trying to help you? Can you hear the buoy going off if one is near you? How long is the noise? See anyone else out there?
Do you have a plan B exit if things really go bad?
It's 100% dependent on your level of skill.
I've been out in horrible conditions and had a blast and I've been out in horrible conditions and was absolutely miserable.
The older I get the more I like calm days with an easy protected launch.
Don't like the wind. Don't mind the rain. Hate a super fast drift.

Add a 6 mph current flowing out to sea and then you'd really have something special...

We've had a spell of small, long-period swells here for a week.  Something like a 2 foot swell at 19 seconds.  The sea looks flat but the 4 foot surf is pretty impressive for a sheltered cove that rarely gets surf taller than 18 inches.

I wouldn't have paid attention to what happens near the beach when there's a really long swell period if someone hadn't mentioned it here.  Learn something new every day.
