Hey Matt, I lost my phone last week, I am still open to dive on 8/16, shore dive, unless a dive boat has two openings, what would you like to do. I am at work today, Saturday 8/8. you can email here at divebuddy or at hope to see you, if conditions are nice and calm are you open to trying monestary? Ron.

Hey Ron. I am good with diving 8/16. I don’t know of any boats that have open spots, but I am down to dive Monestary. Want to plan to meet there at 8am and we can just check that morning to see if shore break conditions are bad?
