Dive Number: 413 01/12/2012 Spring Creek, Torquay

Conditions: Looked Ok but Hellish

Visibilty: 5m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 20minutes

Max Depth: 4m

Details: I parked behind the surfclub and walked along spring creek to the beach. Conditions looked reasonable, but i soon found out it was far than good. The surge was relentless and rather than having a back and forward motion, it would surge and then curl through the many chunks of shallow reef. With poor visbility this was probably the most dangerous dive i’ve ever done. Luckily i returned unscathed, but i’m amazed i didn’t get smashed against the reef a bit more than i did. On the bright side, i found a nice little cluster of hydriods as a sheltered from the surge in a small overhang.

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm, 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
