Find a new and different way to configure your cylinders with the PADI Sidemount Diver course. Because you are able to move the cylinder from your back to your side, it instantly takes the pressure off of your back and gives you more flexibility to move and enjoy your dive. Also, now you don’t have to walk to the dive site with your cylinders on your back. You can enter the water, just clip them on and go!
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
The new PADI Sidemount Diver Speciality course teaches divers how to configure and use one or two cylinders mounted on their sides instead of on their back. The benefits of sidemount diving include:
An alternative way to streamline in the water
Easier equipment transportation when topside
Reduced lower back strain
Provides redundant gas supply
Ability to monitor all equipment because it’s in front of you
Increased gas supply for longer dives
The course includes a practical application session, one confined water dive and three open water dives.
