Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Just show up soon for a scheduled dive and you will have plenty of others to dive with. Welcome aboard.

As Louis mentioned, viz wasn't very good on Saturday, I keep asking this question about the conditions when they aren't very good, "Would you take a new diver out in these conditions?" But I was able to still meet people while on beach patrol who are on the list whom I haven't dove with before, great meeting those who I spoke to.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. Not really worth it. The surf is building and as I write this, surf is running 2-3 feet. Looks like the S swell is here and going to hit 3-5+ feet today. So IF on Saturday it wasn't really worthwhile with 1-3 feet of surf, I can't imagine today will be better for viz. So I expect viz today to run a max of maybe 10 feet in some spots, but less in most others.

Our plans are for Saturday. Let's see how the surf does for the rest of the week. Stay tuned.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
