How I started drowning. Ventura Point firing at 8'or10', no Boart or Wetsuit so I borrow someone else's and the suit was to big. Duck Diving out it flooded, didn't know how to get the water out, so had to go back to shore. Couldn't ride a wave cause of the extra weight, took a bad wipeout and the suit flooded a lot more. Swimming was difficult inside a heavy balloon, was getting moshed, difficult to catch a breath and current taking me to pier. Got out just in the nick of time. Anyone else almost drown?
