SSI Sidemount Diving
Side mount is a scuba diving equipment configuration which has diving cylinders mounted alongside the diver, below the shoulders and along the hips, instead of on the back of the diver. It is a popular configuration with advanced, cave divers as smaller sections of cave can be penetrated and tanks can be changed with greater ease. Sidemount is also growing in popularity with divers who have difficulty handling the heavy double tanks commonly used by cave divers.
Sidemount will be also available for SSI Open Water Diver. Is a new SSI Speciality the first step as technical diver. We will be able to teach this specialty soon.
