Hi Guys,

Long time, no post!

A few months ago Christian Norman and I dove Short Bank in Santa Monica Bay. This was the biggest dive I've done so far and it's a new spot that is not documented and may have never been dove before. I've daydreamed about diving this spot for years and it was a real treat when the topography and conditions exceeded my expectations. I added some commentary regarding the GIS at the beginning and left the dive portion long to serve as a documentary of what's down there instead of just showing the highlights. Feel free to jump around, but be sure to watch the part where the bottom starts coming into view (~3.:40) and the schools of baby rock fish when we turn the dive around 8:30. Thanks to all of my instructors, mentors and buddies who've helped me be able to safely do dives like this!
