Diving with a new and different equipment configuration is not only to go with a trend, Sidemount diving opens a whole new vision of the possibilites that diving can have. Here are just some of the reasons why diving sidemount:
- Reduce drag.
- Increase redundancy.
- Increase stability underwater.
- Carry less weight on land.
- Possibility to access and repair equipment underwater.
- Introduce yourself in a new dicing technique that
will allow you to go further in the technical diving world.
The sidemount configuration is one of the most adaptable and personalized kind of equipment, that is the reason why during the course, you will spend lots of time playing with your harness adjusting it until it fits you perfectly. That´s why we recommend that every diver should have their own harness as every diver has different body shape and needs.
