:| "Shallowman...Were they able to revive the diver?" I pray that they did...Especially if he (she's) from here..."SFSD I hope all was well during your dive-sesh this morning..." Everyone else too, here from this forum do be safe and make it back safe... :|

We all try do give the best advice to divers of different calibers :| ...Stress a lot of times the need for each one to think safety. Even some have given advisory-conditions of great dive areas. Weather permitting, brown-water conditions and high winds. But we all may have been guilty one time or another, going spear-fishing during unstable water conditions I cannot help but wander, if the two of them stayed close to eachother...ONE UP ONE DOWN RULE. What are the chances they were far apart, and could it have been avoided....We all need to take indivisual responsibilities along with concern for our partner. Always watching from above just in case...No doubt too that the conditions may have separated them..drifting them apart. If there was a chance for the diver to be revived, I really pray for that so...How much more times must a tragedy (had he not make it) keep reminding and teaching us all to be smarter and safer divers..... :(

my condolences to his family and friends. its always a tragedy when someone is lost.


from the article SM posted: "Ocean Safety Operations Chief Jim Howe said the man was about 200 yards offshore from a point three-quarters of a mile from the end of the paved road on the Waianae side of Kaena Point State Park."

does anyone know if they were shore diving, yaking, or from boat?

There is a "do-able" shore dive spot around there but... When conditions get a bit rough, re entry is dicey at best. I stick with boat diving when I'm over there now.

my condolences to the family. i am guilty of diving alone a lot and when i dive with a partner, we usually go our separate way to minimize the impact of stalking fish. I am also guilty of diving in bad conditions and had my fair share of close calls, but not in a long time, thanks goodness. I think, i better mend my ways, and start diving with a partner close by.

that was what i was getting at. its way to nuts out there to go without a boat. im scared to pass the lifeguard shack when i take my yak out cuz i know how nuts it is out there. choke guys have to get rescued out there all the time. if i do jump in for a shore dive near the point, its only when conditions are cherry and even then im super cautious. Point being, just be careful out there. its a long swim to kauai

I haven't been able to find any official word on diver nor condition.
