    The Swells Are High, So I’ve Decided To Just Stay Dry

    The last few days have produced nothing more than high surf advisories to the point where piers were closed and warnings were posted for both fishermen and surfers.

    A couple of fishermen were swept off some rocks earlier this week and presumably drowned.

    Last Tuesday’s Press Telegram had a front page photo of someone riding a huge wave…

    Surf’s Up! Cowa Bunga Dude!

    Tuesday’s High Surf Advisory was probably great news to the local surfers.

    312 AM PST TUE FEB 26 2008

    …HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM PST THIS
    MORNING…

    A HIGH SURF ADVISORY MEANS THAT HIGH SURF WILL AFFECT BEACHES IN THE
    ADVISORY AREA…PRODUCING POWERFUL RIP CURRENTS AND BEACH EROSION.
    SWIMMING OR SURFING IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE DURING THIS HIGH
    SURF EVENT. IT IS DANGEROUS TO FISH OR OBSERVE WAVES FROM EXPOSED
    COASTAL STRUCTURES…ROCKS OR JETTIES DURING HIGH SURF. VERY LARGE
    WAVES CAN SUDDENLY SWEEP ACROSS PREVIOUSLY DRY AREAS AND PULL
    ONLOOKERS INTO THE OCEAN.

    The swells looked like they were calming down somewhat yesterday, but thinking that the vis still sucked I declined Instructor John’s invitation to do a lobster dive off of his zodiac.

    On the Divevets’ message board, the conditions at Veteran’s Park last night were reported as “Surf 1-3 footers, viz about 5-7 feet.”

    So, it’s another week staying dry.

    John and I might try a lobster dive Saturday night, weather permitting.

    My buddy Ron T. sent me the following funny cartoon.

    Did you name the boat after me like you said you would?

    Cave Diving Rescue Video

    It’s still raining here.

    I’ve been searching the internet on diving related issues, since the weather has sucked, and came across an interesting cave rescue video.

    The video is a reenactment, but if it’s accurate, notice a few things.

    If I didn’t attend Terry’s cave diving lecture two weeks ago, I would not have noticed some of the very necessities.

    Notice they aren’t trained or equipped for this kind of dive – they have no redundant equipment.

    What is the snorkel for in a cave?
