I would suggest you to get 30lb braid main line and 50Lb Berkley Trilene Big Game to use as a leader. Learn the FG Knot. It is a must knot for surfcasting.
For lures get Halco roosta popper, few metals and few divers.
My preference for surf casting lures will be Rapala x Rap, Yozuri Mag darter, Diawa sp minnow etc...

Venkat pretty much nailed it.

Get some swivels and snaps.
Try not to flash light in the water after dark, specially when someone else is fishing there too.
