Re: SLO Dive Conditions

Hi all, 3rd year Cal Poly student here. Finally actually logged into spearboard after making account a while ago. New to SLO area and have only dove spooners and even then only been out a handful of times. Looking for other spot ideas and even better a dive buddy. I'm a good freediver and willing to dive wherever and whenever, shoot me a text at (530) 574- 5-zero-seven-seven. Also super down for lobster diving, got a light and a bag and all. I normally hunt with a riffe 2 but just bought a hole gun as the riffe was a little cumbersome in the close quarters stuff I was seeing. Really appreciate any and all advice!

Re: SLO Dive Conditions

I've got a kayak (12 ft scupper classic) but so far have just been shorediving. Breath hold is a little weaker than it used to be so I generally prefer hunting as shallow as i can (10-15 or so) but can drop 20-30 if need be

Pacific Coast Shark News 2018


Shell Beach On August 1, 2018 Kristen Sanchez was paddling an outrigger with two companions 0.75 miles from shore about 50 feet Southeast of White Rock at Shell Beach in San Luis Obispo County at 6:50 PM. The recorded air and water temperatures were 61 and 57 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively. There was a mild 5 MPH breeze from the ESE. Marine mammals were present in the area. Sanchez reported;I was paddling with my outrigger canoe club. We had just rounded White Rock, a small emergent rock off of Shell Beach, and our 3 canoes were gathered up, discussing our next moves. I happened to be looking toward the rock when I saw the entire white underbelly (12 14 feet long, broad jaws, massive body, both pectoral fins splayed) as it emerged from the water, blood streaming from its mouth. When the shark resurfaced, I was able to see the grey dorsal fin and the tail fin, as it thrashed and submerged. A couple more disturbances on the water, a crimson pool, and a bird feeding frenzy...then nothing. It was difficult to tell what the shark had attacked but there had been 2 large rafts of Sea Otters that had been resting in separate kelp beds, nearby, and were all now disturbed. Moments before the attack, my canoe had passed through the area and I witnessed a single otter swimming in open water between kelp beds. I would guess this was the victim. We did not paddle over to investigate remnants.

Re: SLO Dive Conditions

Its been quiet. A little too quiet. Yaked out of spooners sat. Things were a little murky with the red tide. Around the corner to the south we could see the bottom in 15/20'. Saw a couple people on the beach with gear and guns. Why has this thread died?

Re: SLO Dive Conditions

Guessing the thread has died for the same reason other shore site condition threads have died. Reports of crappy vis up and down the coast.
