Quarterly Beach Cleanup
AV Desert Divers has teamed up with Heal The Bay and adopted Dan Blocker/Solstice Beach in beautiful Malibu. About once a quarter we are going to get out and do beach cleanup at our adopted beach. The Adopt a Beach (AAB) program is one of the ways A.V.D.D. gives back to the community. Please join us at the beach. Cleanup lasts from 9:00 to 11:00 and we can have lunch at the beach afterward.

The Waves Project helps combat wounded American veterans to participate in a challenging and exciting sport designed to facilitate the rehabilitation process of their injuries as well as rehabilitating the entire family unit. Unlike most veteran organizations that are focused on serving the veteran only, The WAVES Project encourages involvement of the entire family to be a part of the process, assisting rehabilitation for the entire family. We are a 501C-3 non-profit Organization. No costs to the veteran or their dive buddy, we are funded on the generous donations of individuals and corporations. Please visit our website to donate. Thank You!
Please join AVDD on October 27th for the latest edition of our Underwater Pumpkin Carving Competition. Have you got what it takes to add your name to a long list of UPCC Champions? We have been hosting this competition for over ten years now and it keeps getting bigger and bigger. The rules are simple: 1) You must carve your pumpkin underwater. (Hence the title Underwater Pumpkin Carving) 2) You must complete your design in 15 minutes with the tools provided. (No sharp knives) 3) All participants must complete a waiver form. 4) Youngins are 5 - 10 years old. Other Stuff: You need to be an Open Water certified Scuba Diver (bring your C-card). (Unless you can hold your breath for 15 minutes) Prizes will be given out for the three best pieces of pumpkin art in the adult and youngins class.
