The wave predictions, wind, rain and multiple swells keep changing.  Wednesday looks the best overall for beginners.  Thursday and Friday are doable but also depends on if the wind and rain change again.  So I am going to make the call that as long as the conditions donÂ’t become to rough I will offer to help anyone who wants to learn to dive from a kayak or shore on Wednesday Nov 1st. 

If you have a little bit of experience and just want to explore or need a dive buddy we can meet up Thursday or Friday depending on conditions.  Saturday is out as itÂ’s reporting 9Â’ waves with higher winds and possible rain.

Please let me know if you can make it and if you need any gear.  I have an extra kayak I can loan out along with some weights and miscellaneous dive gear. 

For Wednesday I think Van Damme is going to work the best because of its protection from the wind, mild surf and easy access to the parking lot. 

Confirm or I am going to Big Sur without you.

Great Offer DG. I appreciate it. 195 miles (one way) is too far. 
Enjoy Big Sur!

ItÂ’s only 320 each way to Big Sur.  Once you get addicted to Diving miles wonÂ’t matter.
