For JWSP, I parked in the free parking just outside the park. I walked 100ft North to the grass picnic area (visible from gravel lot). It is the perfect size to rig lines, and there are lots of places to attach a self launch tool.

Here's the link for the new wind sensor and weather cam for Double Bluff / Useless Bay on Whidbey Island the guys at Puget Sound Kite are using. They would both be excellent additions to your "Weather Tools" section for people heading south.

I've lived on and around Whidbey for several years and I've never seen waves breaking anywhere on the Island like that.
All Island breaks are very short rides on close inshore reefs (Fort Ebey) or wind swell off a point (Deception).

I've seen bigger waves in past videos

second video looks like the Oregon coast, true.

a better view, calm day
