    Conditions Suck! But, Some Brave Divers Went Anyways.

    I pulled in to Terranea Resort around 8:20 AM; it was overcast and a little windy, barely any divers were in the parking lot.

    Apparently, condition reports from Saturday did not bring a promise of stellar conditions for today; most of the smart divers stayed home.

    Military Bob, Nice Bob and Mike were on the cliff, checking the conditions out.

    Foam, waves, heavy but sporadic swells… I called it and so did Military Bob.

    The other two had the attitude, “If we aren’t going to get wet here, we aren’t going to get wet.”

    Not wanting to waste the morning, Military Bob and I grabbed a soft cooler and headed down to watch the show – that is, the show of the other divers making entrances.

    Having been there and done that, there really is no reason to dive is such conditions.

    If you’re lucky enough to not get hurt, there usually isn’t anything to see, so why bother?

    You can catch most of today’s surface action here.

    Luckily, nobody got severely hurt or killed and reports from the returning divers were, “Five feet, but it opened up to 10 feet in some areas.”

    I noticed a group of freedivers didn’t stay in the water long.

    I do not regret calling today’s dive.


    1. Now I don’t feel so bad about bailing on Sunday and going to Vet’s. When I saw those conditions, I said “Hell no. Not this cracker.”

    2. Some of the poorest flailing attempts at beach entries ever, for what, maybe 3-4′ surf, sad.
