Dunno about SoCal, but I've got the stats for NorCal since 1998,
and I know there's a fellow who was keeping them for SoCal. Maybe
he'll chime in.

Check your redundancies, and your gear, and your head before you
do ANY dive. People die at the Monterey Breakwater in 35' (an
INSTRUCTOR died there a couple of years ago). People die diving
Monastary Beach, Pt. Lobos, the Carmel Pinnacles, and ... If
people dive there, people die there, by and by. Nobodies died
at Ballbuster. Yet. But it will happen, by and by.

So keep your head together, don't do dumb stuff, take care of and
check your gear. IMHO, the two most common causes of diver death
are complacency and panic.
