Great! If more took advantage of the 3-R's, more would beach dive

I hear a lot of divers whine about beach diving - surf's too high, vis is bad, not much to see, etc. If the surf's too high, go to another site (often just down the highway) and conditions may be drastically different...if not, play in the surf or go to breakfast. As for vis, you'll learn to plan your dive around tide changes and monitor NOAA reports for swell direction, height, and intervals (though often they are what they are - perdictions; the actual site may be better / worse). For things to see, I'm not often disappointed as I almost always find something cool or new; may be big or may be little.

Be sure to email the 3-R's coordinator so they can get a count, as a large group is expected (by the way, be sure to stay for lunch after the lesson).
