I earnestly believe if you atleast attempt a good duckdive you'll always come out better off & lose less headway getting out the back than if you do it the old-mans way.
Got an experiment for you; next time you're out in reasonable sized waves duckdive under a big one and get a mate with you to bail, just to see what happens, after the big wave passes and you shoot up the other side, regardless of how bad you think is was... look sideways at the bobbing head of your buddy who bailed, he's now 20 feet further inside than you and still to crawl back on his board...
That's the diffference between you making it over the next lip to rest OTB and the bailers getting hammered again & swept further inside.

All that behind him is shallow reef, I heard one guy tried to duck dive there on a big day and was killed when he was sent head first into the reef.
