Long Beach is a good spot - Claremont ramp in Belmont Shore - very good winds this time of year! (and closer to your than Mission Bay)

You can get pretty close to the water - but you need a set of beach wheels to make it to the water, you can't drive directly on the beach - The parking has a spot to pay cash or credit (I think it's $12 a day) There is free parking on the street, but never any available - just plan on paying - there are quarter lots too - but not that you can have a trailer in.

Went on Sunday without beach wheels just pulled trailer to the Water parking is 12$ a day cash, best wind ive been in yet best hobie day for me so far! Happy i made the trip
another hobie owner right away came over to say hi frenchie is his name great guy
when it was time to leave frenchie helped me with his system, beach wheels and about 80 feet of rope tied to the wheel and his cat to pull the boats back to the trailer
now I'm looking for beach wheels

Glad that it all worked out - we were sailing offshore on Saturday, it never really got all that windy - sounds like Sunday was a better day for you.
