If you don't mind sailing in Newport Bay (Newport Beach) there's
a place on 15th street that offers lessions and rentals. I personally
haven't rented there, but a roommate did last summer. I sail quite
a bit in Newport Bay. It's not great, but it's 50 yards from my
garage; can't beat a quick sail on a windy Saturday afternoon when
it only takes 10 minutes from impulse to water!
I'd think that someone would rent them on Alamitos Bay up in Naples,
but I didn't see anything the one time I went surfing up there.
Wind's much better in Alamitos/Seal Beach, BTW.
