Re: New to the board!

Hi Sean. Lots of guys on this forum dive on air. Most switch between air and freediving as conditions and partners dictate. Glad to have you on board.

Oregon has some great diving when conditions permit, but there are very few protected spots, and therefore it pays to watch the swell forecasts to pick your days.

Vis is not as good a California, but we do have our occasional spectacular days. Most of the time if you have 10 feet you are thrilled. Lower vis makes it make sense to dive on air when freediving would be really difficult.
