Re: Wavy shore dive exits

I remember the day we were at Monastery beach there were a couple of guys diving down there from Seattle that didn't know what California waves were all about and got slammed into the beach, losing their hight end dive camera set up Nikonos v as I remember, (not giving up any hint of my age or how l...

Re: Wavy shore dive exits

We learned to dive in Monterey, Ca. and part of the class was at monastery beach and we had to learn in order to pass the class how to do the monastery crawl in rough waves.... where there are always heavy waves. Deflate, hug the bottom as tight as you can and crawl as fast as you can, no stopping. ...

hood canal

Things are starting to become more lively at flagpole. There were squid and stubbies eggs everywhere. Amazing amounts of fish and more wolf eels there than I have seen in 10 years. Seems like every hole I look in has an eel looking back. A few octopus sitting on their eggs. Still no major nudi sitti...

Hood Canal

Still not much happening at Flagpole and elephant wall. A few new bright red octopus have moved in to old dens. They seem to be real healthy. A couple pairs of wolf eels with huge balls of eggs, but they are so far back in the cave it is hard to get a picture of them. Vis past 10' was probably 30'. ...

uneventful day on hood canal

Met up with Keith today in 30* weather to dive flagpole and elephant wall. There wasn't much to see today, one new octopus that moved into the den of the octopus that we had been watching while she was sitting on eggs. The egg casings were scattered around outside of the den. Hopefully the babies ma...

suckers galore

Met up with Keith on Sunday in the nasty weather. Wasn't bad at first with a little wind and some rain and between dives the sun came out and the wind had died down. On the second dive we noticed that it was getting dark under the water. When we came up the sun was gone and we were completely socked...

hood canal

Sunday on the canal the weather was cold, the coldest air temperature was 21* extremely fogged in most of the day making it feel even colder with no sun at all. Had to jump in the water to get warm. Great for a boat ride as the surface was just a few ripples. Water looked pretty murky on the way dow...

Re: New Fins

Sorry to hear about the smash and grab, deep diver. Grrrrr. Maybe let us know what brand/model gear was stolen so folks here can keep an eye out for it on Craigslist?[/quote]


Keith is planning to post as soon as he gets a list going. Horrible, 5am and only gone for a few minutes. Creeps!

Re: New Fins

Hi Jess, I've been using the mares power plana for years although I have upgraded to the new style that they have available now. They are a little heavier fin, extremely fast and strong for flutter kicks. They work better than anything else I've tried for frog kicks. For backing and turns it takes l...

today Keith and I went to Sund rock as my fuel pump went out on my boat. Looked like a great day on the water but the first dive the vis was pretty bad from surface all the way down to 120'. Second dive it cleared nice past 40'. We went to the cloud sponge on both dives as we didn't figure we would ...

Re: Flagpole Update

Yes, it has been gone a couple of months. It was sitting up on the beach between Mike's and the point. I turned it in too so hopefully with another report they will get it replaced.
It's still easy to find if you are familiar with the site.
