    Logged Dive #127 – Diving With John And One Of His Students

    Veteran’s Park
    Redondo Beach, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and his private Open Water student.

    In With: 1900 psi
    Out With: 1000 psi
    Max depth: 65 feet
    Waves: 1-3 feet but getting choppy
    Visibility: 10 feet over the shelf
    Water Temperature: Cold at 60 feet!
    Total Bottom Time: 20 minutes

    This was just another “fun dive” for John’s student.

    Pacific Wilderness was there teaching a class; so was another really hot instructor.

    I think she teaches for Sea D Sea?

    She doesn’t act like a lesbian, so I doubt she works for Pacific Wilderness.

    This was the same routine as before.

    We submerged and followed John over the shelf and then back in.

    It is really cold at 60 feet.

    My head started to hurt, like eating ice cream too fast.

    The student walked ashore just like he did the last time; he’s a macho diver from the start!

    The student wanted to know why he was going through air so fast compared to John and myself.

    “It will come in time,” we answered.

    He also asked, “What are those small fish that look like halibut?”

    I answered, “Baby halibut.”

    This was a good exercise dive with an extremely easy student.

    Logged Dive #126 – Dove With Instructor John And A Student

    Veteran’s Park
    Redondo Beach, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and his private Open Water student.

    In With: 2800 psi
    Out With: 1900 psi
    Max depth: 65 feet
    Waves: 1-3 feet
    Visibility: 10 feet over the shelf
    Water Temperature: Pretty F’ing cold over the shelf; I think john said it was 55 degrees Fahrenheit
    Total Bottom Time: 20 minutes

    This was the student’s first time diving in the ocean.

    Apparently, he is a surfer and very comfortable in the water.

    We did the usual “walk out and feel the bottom” and “skin dive” routines before dawning our SCUBA gear.

    We submerged about 9:15 AM and went down to 60 feet – something that John usually doesn’t do on first dives.

    However, the student was really comfortable in the water and the visibility sucked until we went over the shelf.

    Out with no problem.

    The student walked ashore, not crawled; that’s very impressive for a first dive!
