how deep?

When paddling out and you need to get into the water to avoid a breaking wave,is it best to go as deep as possible? I'm wondering where the most powerful part of a wave is? I get thrown about like a rag doll sometimes.

Sometimes its more just the timing of it. Sometimes you will get rag-dolled.
You don't want to be in the position of ducking a breaking wave or a split second after it breaks. So you might want to hang back if it looks like you are going to be under it at the wrong time.
