Recreational sidemount

SSI Recreational Sidemount Specialty

Are You Into SM?

Sidemount diving means that you will have two tanks on either side instead of having just one tank on your back. This technique comes from the technical cave and wreck diving world, but has been gaining popularity with recreational divers more and more.

On this course you will learn how effortless it can be to find a flawless trim and a better balance with new gear, and why it makes sense to have redundancy with doubled air delivery systems. You will also learn to finetune the sidemount set to your body dimensions.
