I just started surfing this summer can stand on small waves/whitewash and I can't duck dive. I want to go surfing really badly but I dont know if I should, swellinfo says 3-4+ surfline says 1-3(belmar/spring lake) should I even attempt to go? i live like an hour away so I don't want to take the trip if its gonna be to rough

any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated

thank you
