Thanks James. I couldn't dive due to a head cold, trust me, I've learned to not dive when I have those.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. First, will the county issue a rain advisory, it did not rain much yesterday, but that is a decision the county will make today. Right now, the surf is a bit higher than the weekend, running 1-3 feet right now. Viz should still be good at around 20 feet. Send me your dive reports if you head out.

Our plans are for Saturday. Stay tuned to SCD for more.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
