Thursday, February 29th, 2024: Afternoon Report

La Jolla Shores Dive Report

Hey, fellow divers, here's the scoop for our underwater adventures in South SD brought to you by Audrey Holloway & Dustin Breuer:

Thursday Afternoon Dive & Surf Report for South SD: The surf is small but relatively clean, with light onshore wind, making it look fun, especially for those with more giant boards or fish. We're seeing a decreasing mix of swells from the SSW and NW, with most breaks around waist-high or less. The top combo spots from roughly La Jolla North are slightly better, maybe reaching chest-high at their maximum. The surf size and quality are expected to remain similar to what we're seeing now for the remainder of the day. The onshore wind will stay light, and the surf will hold steady or gradually fade. It's still worth checking out as long as you have the right expectations and board and want to get in the water.

The reported water temperature is 61 degrees Fahrenheit. This warmer temperature suggests comfortable conditions for divers, but always consider thermal protection based on personal tolerance and dive duration. The light winds and the current surf conditions may provide relatively calm surface conditions, ideal for diving, especially in areas protected from any onshore wind. Safety should always be the top priority, and consider the changing conditions when planning your dives.

Whether you're planning to surf or dive, the afternoon offers mellow conditions, suitable for a relaxed time in the water.

Dive Safe & Dive Often!

Best wishes from Audrey and Dustin!

Heisler Park Dive Report

Hey, fellow divers, here's the scoop for our underwater adventures in South OC brought to you by Audrey Holloway & Dustin Breuer:

Thursday Afternoon Dive & Surf Report for South OC: There has been little change from earlier. The onshore/SW wind has picked up a bit, so there's some surface texture to contend with, but it's still manageable. There are still a couple of crumbly peaks in the knee-to-waist to the chest-high range to find, coming from the mix of SSW and NW swells.

Surface conditions should remain manageable through the mid-afternoon window before the wind switches to the W and picks up to moderate levels. In terms of swell, there's no real boost expected today, so the size will remain modest until sundown.

For divers, the onshore winds and surface texture may affect visibility and water movement, especially in shallower areas or wind exposure. Safety should always be your top priority. As always, could you consider these factors when planning your dives? The moderate winds in the afternoon might affect surface conditions, so plan your dives accordingly.

Whether you're planning to surf or dive, the conditions today offer opportunities for a relaxed time in the water; just be sure to adjust your expectations according to the modest swell and changing winds.

Dive Safe & Dive Often!

Best wishes from Audrey and Dustin!
