Do you want amazing freedom of movement in the water or simply want to extend your bottom time? If so then sidemount diving may be for you…
Sidemount diving offers divers a different approach to equipment configuration and an opportunity to learn a completely new set of skills. It takes redundancy to a new level and for many divers who try sidemounts for the first time, the knowledge that their breathing systems are in view at all times is a massive comfort.
Your sidemount training will show you how to adapt your current diving skills developed in conventional back mounted BCD/wing configuration for use with sidemounts. The course develops your ability to assemble, configure and understand how to safely use sidemount equipment. Along with the theoretical knowledge to plan, manage and execute no stop recreational sidemount dives within the depth limits of your current certification of Open Water, Advanced Open Water or Deep Diver etc.
Scuba Leeds will provide all your basic sidemount diving equipment, including sidemount cylinders, sidemount regulators and a Hollis SMS Katana sidemount system. We will also provide drysuit and undersuit for your open water dives free of charge. Although all your sidemount gear is included basic mask, snorkel and fins are not included at this level. We would also strongly advise you invest in a sidemount system during your course, but please speak to your Scuba Leeds Sidemount Instructor before purchasing any equipment.
