Yo, reviving a dead forum so no one can blame me for not searching for a prior answer first
So I'm staying out the point of Anacortes for the next few months and really want to be able to get some foiling in on the ocean while I'm out here! one problem, I'm a long ways from locust beach up in Bellingham. I'm hoping I can find a spot or two that are a bit closer of a drive (I'm use to living 5min from the beach, sue me). I'm down for kiteboarding if the winds are 15+ kts, but I plan on bringing foil gear and getting some awesome shots cruising around on the foil.
so I went for a drive today a scoped out some spots here's what I came up with:

I found some details on this beach on another forum, I drove down there and it seems sketch and like that info is outdated? for those of you from the area, do you need to apply for membership to "hunt" on the land to walk along the line fence to get down to the water?
Samish Island public beach access

seems like this could be tricky at high tide, not sure if this is really viable, but it is a public beach and doesn't feel like you're trespassing. There's another beach called blue heron beach nearby that I didn't check out but looked viable across the bay.
Bay View State Park

This one seemed the most promising and like a real park. Its getting close to an oil refinery plant which I'm not stoked about, but it is close and would work great for NW winds which are supposed to be common this time of the year.
-interestingly enough its nude beach, looks like this could work on a south wind day too and save me 20 minutes of driving. Any ideas on this one?
I found a link to this forum as well with recommendations for tide heights to get out there (lots of thick mud on low tide)
Any other ideas from those of you who are light wind chasers that frequent the area hit me up! I guess if its a south wind day I'm driving up to Bellingham. I'm comfortable drift launching and dealing with squirrelly tough winds, though I'm hoping I can get some of the smooth ocean wind I hear so much about (I've been kiting around inland lakes for 2 years now)
