    Logged Dive #179 – DMITing An OW Class At Veteran’s Park

    Veteran’s Park, Redondo Beach, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and his students Jack and General Custer* as part of my Dive Master Class.

    In With: 3100 psi
    Out With: 2000 psi
    Max depth: 50 feet
    Waves: 1-3 feet, ankle breakers
    Visibility: 5-8 feet
    Water Temperature: 58 degrees Fahrenheit – I think
    Total Bottom Time: 31 minutes
    *Student names have been changed.

    The same student that stiffed us last Catalina trip also stiffed us again on this day; at least we didn’t have to do a skin dive.

    We entered the water with no problem, swam out and submerged.

    Jack took a while getting down.

    The majority of the dive was Jack and General Custer demonstrating their basic skills – regulator ditch and recovery, mask clearing, weight belt replacement, emergency swimming ascent, etc.

    John then took us to the edge of the shelf and down to 50 feet.

    General Custer signaled to me that he was at 1000 psi; I motioned to John and we headed in.

    We made it ashore with no problems.

    Jack had fun washing around in the surf zone.

    My Momentum dive watch sprung a leak; it is now flooded and not working.
