Re: Tried Kayak diving? Got any tips?

Hi Janna, I used to dive mine a lot when I was living up in Seattle and I'd be happy to get together with you and show you the kit that I've put together and how I've rigged mine. A while back a few of us got together up at Battleground Lake and did some practice dives that were a lot of fun too. Ross

WTB Ditchachable Weight Pockets for BP/W

Anyone have any ditchable weight pockets cluttering up their dive locker that they'd like to part with? I'm looking for something in the 20-30lb range to add to the harness on my backplate and wing. I've been diving for years with a weight belt but had some recent back problems that make me think ha...

It fits the characteristics of a quillback, but a more important question for Janna might be: how well does it fit your head? Remember, if you don't provide pictures it didn't happen.

Re: Sea Urchin Identification Question

Thank you Greg! That was only my third dive at Salt Creek and I was able to add two new species to my life list! (heart urchin and northern abalone in the wild!) Needless to say I was pretty excited at the end of the dive.

Sea Urchin Identification Question

While diving at Salt Creek last weekend I saw a sea urchin at about 30 feet that was definitely not a red, purple or green urchin. Of course I didn't have my camera (headslap!) but I spent some time examining it and this was what I saw: it was light colored (tannish) and it was definitely alive (tub...

Please consider uploading your critter sightings to the REEF database as well. Janna coordinated some baseline surveys at Saltwater after the new structures were built and every survey report will help to document the changes at this site. Thank you for all your efforts!
