My LA County ADP class was doing rescue skills at Redondo Beach Saturday evening, and as happens in a beach rescue class in surf, some gear was lost - mostly because it was carefully placed on the bottom of the dive float anchor line and the float was subsequently pulled to another location by someone. Night, surge, and crappy vis wrote the rest of this story.

So, the missing gear:

2 weight belts with soft weights
1 XL Jet fin (no spring strap, just the standard rubber one)
1 snorkel (while looking for the fin)
1 integrated weight pocket with soft weights

I know my weight belt was placed on the bottom in 10' of water almost straight out from the stairs (the tide at the time was +4.6 ft and falling). The other was more to the north (closer to the pier). The fin disappeared in the surf zone.

I'd appreciate hearing of any gear discoveries to reunite divers and their toys.
