who needs scuba, when you can freedive? wearing just a 3mm, and no tank has been nice.

went to malibu for some freediving this afternoon, 4PM to 6PM

low surf, 10-15ft vis, some strong surge though

the 1st hour was a little slow, I saw lots of schools of juvenile topsmelt

then things picked up.. white sea bass, cabezon, spotted kelpfish, small bat ray, schooling black croakers, a large school of baby black perch, lots of giant kelpfish..

great exercise, and a great way to spend the late afternoon

I also hit up shaw's cove & crescent cove in laguna, and marina del rey over the last few days for freediving with my wife. conditions were nice in both places.

here's some photos. I took my fisheye lens, and I had 1 strobe in laguna and in malibu.
