Yeah I got my ass kicked yesterday for about a half hour trying to get in one last dive.

Fisk was too hard to get to/lug all my gear out since they closed off the entrance, so we headed to Gerstle and were greeted by a washing machine full of 10 footers.  Figured I'd hit the bunny slope at Ocean Cove thinking the big waves wouldnt crash in there too bad...for as long as it took me to look at it and gear up I was right, but by the time I paddled out a ways I was getting slammed by 10 foot waves- to the point where one ripped one of my fins halfway off and uprooted the bullkelp I had tied my boogie board to.  After about 15 minutes I spent the next 15 kicking back into shore.  All in all one of the more stupid decisions I ever made even getting in there. 

Called it a day/season and went off to collect porcinis.

Thanks for the vid Matt! Nice to know I didn't screw up and waste the gas money heading up there. I was tempted to go out on Saturday but had no takers, at least for my plans any way! Glad you guys took the smart road this time, well almost all of you! :laughing7:
