Good morning Divers!!! Happy 2015 everyone!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Just show up for a scheduled dive soon. Welcome aboard.

FYI. The dive park at Catalina/Avalon is closed until further notice, a lot of damage to the railing into the water, the sea wall and even the Casino areas due to the high surf over the last few days. When the wind blows from the East, Avalon can get nailed by it. Thanks for the info and pictures Ruth. Plus the news has reported 2 deaths in Avalon due to the surf, not diving related.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. Good. The surf is down and the viz is up. I haven't heard from Paul and anyone who went diving this morning, so we'll see on that. Surf to is running 1-2+ feet and viz should be anywhere from 30-50 feet, yup, I said 50 feet has been reported.

Our plans are for Saturday. Get your gear ready & be ready to dive.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
