I became a certified Open Water Diver in 2008 after my wife told me that she wanted to go on a cruise. We both got certified but she is still waiting for her cruise...
Initially, I wanted to extend my bottom time, I went from a typical scuba cylinder (80 cuft) to a bigger cylinder (117 cuft) which also meant larger and heavier but I still wanted more underwater time.
Rather than looking at a twinset, (two cylinders on my back), I looked at different options and after trying sidemount, I was hooked. The biggest surprise was the peace of mind knowing that I had a fully redundant system every time I get in the water.
My sidemount journey has been filled with expensive lessons to learn and amazing places to visit.
With more people becoming interested in sidemount, I wanted to share my experiences with others so that they could be better informed, learn the good, the bad, and the nice to know.
Follow along on our adventures around the world!
