    The Month Of May Sucked For Diving

    The last several months of shore diving have absolutely sucked; at least that’s the reports that I have received.

    I’ve woken up in the mornings to see swell map models in the orange and yellow and surfers on the beach webcams.

    I guess I need to come up with some money to get on a boat, or have enough patience to wait out what has been one of the worst shore diving seasons that I can remember.

    So, you may ask, what the hell have I been doing to occupy my time?

    Yeah, I guess this is just to add fluff to my blog as I haven’t posted anything relevant in a month.

    I am still training to be a cage fighter, however, the older I get, it seems I’m losing my youthful advantage.

    I have also acquired a Telecine – it digitizes regular 8 mm and Super-8 film…

    A Telecine

    … if you’re under 25, you may not even have a clue as to what that is.

    I’ve started to digitize my collection of movies that I have acquired over the years from estate sales, internet purchases and my personal collection.

    I have realized, some are just plain F’ing weird…

    Drunk guys getting married, circa 1960s.

    Others, are ancient skin flicks…

    Ancient Prono

    … and others are quite historic…

    Las Vegas 1960s

    Sorry for being off the diving topic, but the good and interesting movies I am digitizing and putting on the following YouTube Channel:

    The 8 mm film archive

    On that note, I am scraping for some boat money.

    More diving soon, but yes, I am still alive.


    1. Nice Bob and I are going on the Pac Star to Ship Rock and Blue Cavern on the 18th (Dive N Surf trip). If you’ve scraped together any $$$ you should join us. 3 dives 2 locations.

    3. Hope you get on! In the mean time you could restart the countdown to next season (this season sucked)!

    4. Since my group is mostly beach diving now, we are all in agreement 16 has had some of the worst conditions in recent memory. First west wind was relentless
      Now south swell is hitting. One good thing, with the end of El NiƱo there have been more halibut around. Hope to see a report from your boat dive.

    5. June hasn’t been much better. We stayed home last week due to high surf. We made two bounce dives today and had less than a foot vis on each. Maybe July will be better.
