I agree with you the show has been a disappointment for me too. I wish they would move it to the Convention center downtown LA. The parking sucks in Long Beach. Seams their is always other shows going on and I end up way the heck out in left field some where . The food is over priced and poor quality. I stopped and talked briefly with Dale Sheckler
in 2001. He said he had it at Long Beach because he wanted the show close to the water. I had it with the long drive, poor parking, and the lack of scuba product being sold at the show, mostly for display only. That which was being sold was full retail. Why should I drive for an hour to pay retail when I can buy in my local dive shop for retail? I will pass it up again this year. Hey more room for DIR crowd and their propaganda machine. Oh no did I raise an eyebrow . Just kiding guys ! Dont get your wings in a knot . dawhale
