I need a surf fishing rod for the Outer Banks, NC

I broke my damn rod today and I leave for the beach in 4 days. It is a split rod and the two parts were stuck together.
Heat gun + pliers = broken rod.

I am headed out to Gander Mountain or Dicks Sporting Goods to pick up a new one. What are some things to look for?

I need a split rod.
I need it flexible enough to cast the shit out of it past the surf.
Its for light surf fishing...not marlins or great whites.
I have a reel.

I use a 13ft ugly stick and it works great. They arent that much compared to other ones and very tough. Tsunami robs are good too. Look in the discount bucket.

What size is recommended? You say 13' but isn't that a bit long?

I'm not an experienced surf fisherman. I used a 6.5' inland rod until today. I do have trouble casting out past the surf...maybe a longer rod would help
