Surf rod butt extension?

 Just wondering if anyone can recommend someone to build a butt extension onto my surf rod.I live in northern suburbs of Perth.It needs to be a professional job as I don't fancy trying to throw out a big cast only for the thing to give under pressure.Any info would be good !


 I want to catch a fish so big I can put a saddle on it !
