Good morning Divers!!!
I'm back. I have been out of the country on vacation and visiting relatives. It is good to be back. Special thanks to Louis for handling the group email while I was away.

Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Just show up for a scheduled soon, conditions permitting. Welcome aboard.

Current scuba diving conditions in Laguna Beach. The S swell is pretty strong as I write this with S waves breaking at 2-4 feet. Not ideal. But can you find decent diving today in Laguna? My viz-timate for today will be the typical Laguna of 8-15 feet. From what I see in the swell forecast, surf will build today & tomorrow and drop down for late Thu & Fri only to build once again on Fri.

Our plans will hinge on the surf forecast. Remember we want decent viz, 10-15+ feet. But since we also take newer divers out, getting knocked down in the surf is not good for those who are new. So high surf and low viz is a combo we wish to avoid. So we will watch the surf and decide by Fri what our plans are. Stay tuned.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
