Before Work Dive at La Jolla Shores

Meetup Time 6:30 AM In Water Time 6:45 AM

I'll be on the street along Vallecitos near the Flagpole. You can drop off your gear and then park if you like, but this early you should be able to park really close along Vallecitos. You can park there until 9am.

All divers are welcome. This will be a 1-tank dive for those that need to go to work, but you are welcome to dive more on your own. If you don't have a buddy just ask around, we are a friendly group.

The plan is to meet, gear up, and be in the water around 6:45am.

All are welcome, this dive site has opportunities for all dive levels. Never dive beyond your training and comfort!

ADMIN STUFF YOU MUST READ:

The Virtual Donation Jar is always out (for the Meetup site costs and general fund). It's strictly voluntary, but is very much appreciated and needed: Click here for the DONATION JAR

If you have not submitted a Liability Release for Power Scuba, please follow this link to the file, print, sign, and bring to the event along with your C-Card (scuba certification card). You need to do this at least once a year: Liability Release and Assumption of Risk

You must also read this: Disclaimer and Clarification... AKA Terms of Service...AKA Terms and Conditions

Anyone with a medical condition possibly counter-indicitive to diving must have a doctors signature on a diving waiver form and submit signed form to Bill Powers (or an organizer) before they may attend any Power Scuba event. YOU MAY NOT ATTEND AN EVENT WITH AN UNDISCLOSED MEDICAL CONDITION. Doing so is grounds for expulsion from the group. Here is our medical statement: Medical Statement Therein you'll find a Doctor Waiver form as well.

Attending any scuba event Power Scuba facilitates constitutes attendee's affirmation they are medically fit to dive, certified to dive by a nationally-recognized agency, have the necessary skill & training level for the dive being offered, have read the Terms and Conditions, and have submitted a signed Liability Release to an organizer.

Important Note: It is not the organizer's role to lead your dive (or to wait for you after you come out of the water). He/she merely facilitates you getting to the pre-dive meeting location. The Organizer will not assign you a buddy nor will he/she be leading the dive as a "group dive". Visibility and liability do not allow for that. Nor will the Organizer tell you whether you are skilled enough to make any particular dive. That is for you (only) to decide. When you enter the water, you (and your buddy) are on your own. You must plan and execute your dive with your dive buddy only. Once members arrive at the meeting spot, the Organizer becomes simply another diver.

    Great way to start the day and find out just how heavy the HP130 really is. Note to self, even less weight next time.
    Saw all kinds of bugs and a sheepshead the size of Kevin's leg...Thanks Kevin for letting me get situated and tag along.

    That was just what I needed. We sure got lucky with the timing. The waves were nearly flat when we entered. Then during the dive the wind picked up and we surfaced to an angry ocean.

    Saw lots of squid eggs, crabs, and a huge starfish. The best part was that I survived a challenging exit by using safe shore entry procedures.

    Waves weren't as bad as predicted. Easy entry, a little choppy on the way out.

    Hey guys, I'm still going down there to have a look, but it's looking like no diving. http://cdip.ucsd.edu/?nav=recent&sub=observed&pub=public&map_stati=1,2,3&stn=073&stream=p1&units=english&tz=PST&xitem=buoy_ww3

      Yikes. I'll go there to assess the situation too just in case we catch a break.

      ....a lucky break, not an ACL break like last time. Yikes.
