    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!
