Why Sidemount Diving?
The SSI Sidemount Course has become increasingly popular. There’s many reasons to dive side mount but the most important reason is harder to define. It’s a feeling of freedom, of the ability to move and hang in all directions effortlessly. Learning to dive side mount requires much more than simply strapping two tanks on your sides, and it’s true that it’s a bit more complicated than back mount at the beginning.
But with proper training, using your side mount system to its full benefit quickly becomes second nature. Side mount is not a trend and it’s not just for tech divers anymore. It’s a new way of diving, and we love it!
