It's important to get local knowledge. I was visiting and surfing in Panama City Beach at St. Andrews State Park by the jetty, and I asked the crew why no one paddled across the inlet to Shell Island, which looked to me like a better wave. They all said I would get sucked out to sea and don't try it. Glad I asked first.

I can't be specific about any inlets. I guess then, suffice it to say that I am interested in crossing every inlet on LI over the course of my life. I have seen a bunch of them in person and they look massive.
If I i ever do try and cross, I will coordinate something with a friend on a ski or kayak or something. I'm not sure if paddling across an inlet would be a practical time saver around here so the act would be more about the adrenaline and saying I did it more than anything else.
I have never heard of anyone crossing inlets around here, and I know one buddy who got swept out to sea during the change in tides at Jones Inlet. I'm pretty sketched by it, especially the boats most of all.
