I'm less convinced on the placement of the surge/waves/current.  I feel
that this is disconnected with some of the other qualifiers for the dive
(visibility, rating) that show up on the Notes page.  That's where I think
these items belong.

Personally I use tags to mention current, so I'm generally not strongly
supportive of the star rating of current.
