Information

The PADI Sidemount & Tec Sidemount Diver Manual is everything you need to read through for your sidemount course, detailing the skills you need to do and how to set-up your equipment.

 

Flexibility and Increased Range are the main benefits of sidemounting cylinders. Twin sets increase the amount of gas you can take down with you but are very rigid, make you quite top-heavy and increase your profile in the water. Sidemount attaches the cylinders down the side of your body so you are much more streamlined and stable in the water.

 

Ease Of Entry and Penetration because neither cylinder is permanently attached; you can remove both stages and move them around to fit through smaller spaces. Entry and exiting the water is much easier too as you can attach each cylinder in water.

 

Discipline of gas monitoring and swapping stages is taught throughout the course along with gas sharing and trim underwater.

The PADI Sidemount course is the best course I’ve done in my 18 years of diving. I was reluctant to do it as, being a purely recreational diver, I was intimidated by some courses which emphasised a “one way of doing it” approach; which is fine for those who want that but I didn’t. My instructor who taught me the course really made me comfortable and explained that I could configure things (mainly hose routings) how I wanted to, not how some technical doctrine decrees. So, all of that is really detail about how the instructor on my course applied and taught the manual, but the manual contains all the detail you need to get started - and, if you want to, go deeper into sidemount diving (technical). Based on my own experience, I’d say look no further than this manual and the PADI Sidemount Diver specialty course.
