Favorite Dive Gear
Atomic, Oceanic, SeaQuest, XS ScubaAtomic Split fins really do save air, and legs. They are easier to kick than my paddle fins, since I borrowed my buddy´s fins one day.
Favorite Dive Locations
So far, just Anacapa Island. Would like to see some warm water sites, though. Thousand Steps is not a bad beach dive. Nice kelp forest, and tons of wildlife. Seals and fish make diving fun!
The kelp forest was like a deep woods hike. The water was 45 degrees, and the tide was going out. The waves, and the sea were rough, but not down at the bottom. A seal chased fish right by us, then seemed to wonder why we didn’t chase as well.
