It was pretty sloppy. There didn't seem to be any real sets, just a bunch of water movement followed by a two footer, which is small at some beaches but not on a rocky, eneven bottom as Marineland. Merry remarked earlier that I personally know at least five divers who have broken bones there. One was during an exit with Merry and me in the best of conditions. Ted lost his balance in about six inches of water and reached for a rock to catch himself, breaking two fingers. Evil Jeff Shaw broke ribs while putting on his fins in front of an oncoming wave. It's a great dive site, but sometimes you pay for the dive with your body.
