    Southern California Dive Conditions Now On Twitter

    It was announced on a post at that someone by the nickname of Pavlov0032 has started a Twitter group to relay Southern California Dive conditions in sort of real time.

    The link is here:

    I know a lot of readers reference this blog for the condition reports, but unfortunately, I’m not out all the time.

    If you want a constant stream – or annoyance – of dive conditions, feel free to join.

    I’m still trying to figure out how to send text messages on my cellphone, so Twitter as a whole is not something that interests me right now.

    But what the hell?

    You may find it useful.

    If you don’t know what twitter is, you can read all about it on the Wikipedia write up.

    The Anger Of The Sea Continues!

    Thinking that conditions would vastly improve this weekend with the Obama administration in power, I again headed down to the Old Marineland.

    Reports from Not So New Chris from Saturday reported that the public parking lot is now closed and that conditions looked sucky.

    The Old Marineland Public Access Lot Is Now Closed.

    Sure enough, to the relief of the surrounding community, the public lot is now part of the soon to be nine hole golf course of Terranea Resort.

    The public notice about beach access.

    So, it looks like we access through the main gate now?

    The trail was still open, so I parked on the street and checked out the conditions.

    Not one other diver was around at 8:20 AM.

    The water looked divable but not good.

    The water looked divable, but not that great.

    The swell maps from last night showed a pretty hard swell pounding the shore with four to six foot waves.

    The cove looked a little muddy.

    The cove looked a little muddy, but it was possible to dive.

    So where is everyone?

    I went to check out Honeymoon Cove where I met up with Not So New Chris.

    He said, “Don’t even think about it.”

    Honeymoon Cove was great for surfers.

    Honeymoon Cove looked like a surfer’s paradise; definitely Old Marineland would have been the better bet.

    I met up with Reverend Al who was looking for the regular crew.

    Al said, “I went to the main gate of Terranea Resort, but the guard had no idea that he was suppose to provide beach access.”

    It’s the same crap again!

    Oh well, I got back in to the mighty Duster and drove to Rebel’s Cocktails in San Pedro for a debrief, and then home, to the ghetto of Long Beach.
