. . . Generally speaking about half of the divers entering and exiting the water did so to the detriment of their own safety and that of the shallow water reef. Before gearing up they should have scouted the shoreline and identified the only obvious clear channel into the water, located next to the big yellow rock on the shoreline. Instead they geared up at the truck and wandered into the water wherever they could. . . . About half of those exited using the same strategy, making a beeline for shore from wherever they popped up at the end of the dive. . . .

wwguy, Hope you're ok with the way I cut up your quote from the "Scooter" thread.
This is exactly what we were seeing that was pretty scary to watch, especially when coupled with the fact that most of the divers we saw were taking their regs out and their masks off before they got near the wave break. And, absolutely no one seemed to be paying any attention to the pattern of the waves.
