    Logged Dive #199 – Redondo, Redondo, Redondo AGAIN!

    Veteran’s Park, Redondo Beach, CA

    Dove with Instructor John’s Basic Open Water student Mohamed and ex-student Spike.*

    In With: 2100 psi
    Out With: 1000 psi
    Max depth: 60 feet
    Waves:  2-5 foot swells, mellow
    Visibility: 15 feet and pretty clear
    Water Temperature: Warm until the cold thermo cline at 50 feet or so.
    Total Bottom Time: About 20 minutes
    *Note: Students names have been changed.

    John dove with Suzuki and her husband Arrogant Asshole;  I took his student Mohammed and former student Spike on this dive.

    We all made it out with no problems and submerged to 15 feet or so.

    I lead the way – swam to the shelf and went down to 60 feet;  we went North along the shelf.

    Spike gave me the universal “I am cold sign.”

    There was sort of a thermo cline.

    We entertained ourselves by annoying the usual crabs, sand dollars and starfish.

    As I remember, Spike ran short of air first – at least he consumed more at depth.

    We swam back to the shore almost entirely under water – I could easily stand to take my fins off, but was a little too deep as I lost my footing a few times.

    Spike and Mohammed made it to shore with no problems.

    John and his group followed about 15 minutes after us.

    Suzuki passed the class;  I THINK Mohamed may need another dive before graduating.

    John advised Suzuki and her Arrogant Asshole husband that she is certified and ” to leave the camera at home, go boat diving and resort diving.

    “Don’t dive here and don’t go beach diving until you are comfortable.”

    I wish her the best;  I hope he doesn’t kill her.
