With large winter storms, howling winds and stong swell running up the coast during this season, it was a delight to find some quiet weather and clean water. On 3 August 2013 the usual suspects kitted up and due to the good viz Jacques made a call to do a very shallow 6 - 8m dive at Discovery Channel. The surge was not too bad, and it was interesting to dive a bit closer to shore because the underwater landscape changes considerably from 20m to 6m. Water temp was in the range of 18 degrees and viz varied greatly between 5 and 15m depending how close you were to sand patches. Several raggies (Ragged Tooth Shark) were spotted by a few lucky divers who decided punch through sandy patches. The other group turned around and put their attention on smaller weird and wonderful creatures. The new Dive Master student group did things like search and recovery and they also did the 800m swim to shore.
