Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Show up for a scheduled dive soon, conditions permitting. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. Could be better. The S swell is still showing its strength and this is not what we want for diving in Laguna Beach. The surf this AM is running 1-3 feet and the weather is really foggy too. Viz is still questionable at 10 feet, less in some areas and I want to be optimistic, it could be better in some of the better viz spots. But generally, diving requires dealing with the S swell and low viz conditions today. What is with these conditions & viz lately?? If you head out today, drop me a dive report.

Javy sent me an email, his group is diving on Wed at Mountain Ave at 7 PM on Wed. So if you want to hook up for a night dive, hook up with his group. If you need to contact Javy, drop me a reply and I will get you his contact info. So Javy, I expect a dive report by Thu AM!!

Our diving plans for Saturday. Louis & I are having "Diving fever" and want to get back in the water. But the question will be the VIZ, are we willing to abandon our 10 foot min viz and make a questionable dive?? Well, it is early in the week. The swell forecast drops a bit over the next day or so, with an increase by Saturday. But regardless, STAY TUNED!!

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
