count me in for tuba/limantour too! i've only sailed at Limantour once... I had never been there, and there were two other sailors who had gone out earlier, but disappeared quickly upwind b/f I could get on the water. It was super windy... I was getting blown off a 3.7 and 62l wave board. I was essentially sailing by myself which was making me feel uneasy. Would definitely welcome some company there!

One thing that has not been mentioned about palo is the poison oak on the trail it can get real bad. I sailed there a lot about 15 years ago and I would say it's best at about a 4' and higher tide with a west or southwest swell. NW Wind is side to side on. If wind has to much north in it , it gets gusty inside . We use to try and keep this spot a secret but with the decline in windsurfers I don't think crowds will be a problem. Have fun

On a relatively high tide, Palo offers a pretty decent looking wave. Given NW or WNW winds, it would be a great sailing site. A buddy and I went out there last spring to give it a shot, but, the poison oak was so thick, there was no way to schlep your gear and keep clear of the stuff---with just a surfboard, you could probably do it, but, with windsurf gear, it would be difficult at best. However, every year is different, and the poision oak could have suffered a die-back or some saint may have cut it back to improve access. I will certainly try again this spring.
