I've windsurf SantaAna's at Huntington and Sunset Beach's, was fine except for the long walk to the shoreline.
Seen two guys ride Topanga with no problems, and Secos is a swell riding spot for a longboard.
C street Ventura of course.
Swami's on a Southerly.
Cardiff Reef also, just S.
Onshore wave rode Gladstones in SantaMonica.

Tourmaline is a bit of a drive for you, but I've sailed my SUP at San Onofre a few times, which is south OC. You'll need to head pretty far down to the Dog Patch, which is at the far south end from Old Man's - they don't allow SUPs or windsurfers on the main breaks. It rarely gets very windy, but it breaks kinda offshore so the rides can be reasonably long. It breaks better on a south. West to Northwest winds work best. Depending on your board volume, you could ride it down to 7 or 8 mph.

Tourmaline looks good for this weekend. Solid swell and decent wind. Should be good for windSUP. Of course, I'll be out of town... Get there early - you'll end up waiting for parking.

Ive windsurfed Doheny and Capo Beach, but mostly in the spring.. If Doheny ever had waves and wind, it would be like San Carlos. However, It only works well on a true south swell, and the wind is pretty light in the summer. There will be waves there this weekend, and plenty of surfers. You would probably be better off SUS without the sail. (I've had issues with the lifeguards before when windsurfing at Doheny. You will have to stay in the SUS zone)

I've never windsurfed San Clememte, but have sailed San O and Church in the spring. Both of these sites rarely have wind, but can be quite good when they do. There used to be a guy who sailed Dog Patch in light wind, so there may be opportunities for SUP sailing.

I bought my first SUP with the idea that I would put a sail on it (it's a Starboard) and ride waves. I never have, perhaps I am missing something, but I am quite happy simply surfing the SUP boards. If there was large surf, it seems that a sail on a SUP would be difficult to manage.

I surfed at Trail One today, and then went to check out Doheny. The swell was definitely starting to show there, and maybe there was enough wind to go out on an SUP windsurfer.

You might also try River Jetties in Newport today or Sunset Beach. It's looking decent for light wind wavesailing.
