    I think the primary lesson here is being missed. It's great that you had the presence of mind to stay calm and get yourself out of a bad situation, but real lesson here is that if it's "debatable" conditions don't do the dive. Thumb it before you put you're self in an ugly situation.

    Good point. I have dived quite a few times here when there was more surge, but as you say, you never know.
