    Safety Diver for The Los Angeles Sheriff Department’s “Gold Star Dive.”

    This is my second year as a safety diver for this event and this time it’s part of my Divemaster course.

    Instructor John, fellow DM Student Ron and myself took the 7 AM boat over.

    As instructed, I just took free diving equipment.

    I didn’t have to take my weight belt, but I did some free diving before the event.

    Registration and food!

    The safety crew.  Pretty damn scary, huh?

    The charity event started at 11 AM – John and I were in Kayaks; Ron was in the water with a can.

    The whole event went without a hitch, thank God.

    I was getting so bored, I reached over to grab a piece of kelp – I was going to throw it on the kayak and watch it turn green in the Sun – but I fell over and into the water.

    Ron swam over and held the kayak as I climbed back on board – Ron wrote this down as his “rescue” for the day.

    Jake from American Diving swam over and dumped a chick that was in another Kayak; Jake then had to free dive for her lost mask.

    This event had record attendance; I think 130 registered divers participated.

    We took the early boat back.
