Gotta love work days between Christmas and New Year. Not much happening at work early so a dive is the best way to start the day.
We choose to dive the Deep Wall, a dive that we have done many times before. We walked out to the end and assessed the small waves as being easy enough to get through.
We sat on ledge that was just getting a bit of wash on it so that we could get fins on. But then a larger set of waves came through and smashed us. Wayne lost one fin and it washed back out to sea. I got tumbled but managed to steady and get my fins on. I walked carefully forward and put my foot straight into a hole up to my calf. Fearing another wave would come and smash us again I managed to pull my leg back out of the hole. I think that if I had fallen or been knocked by a wave I would have broken my leg.
I got in quickly and looked around for Wayne's fin but could not see it. Wayne chose to do the dive with only 1 fin on. We headed out over and down to the wall and then meandered along it, heading back up to the west reef, around the reef and then back to the ramp on the island.
Overall a lovely dive with a rough start.
