What is Sidemount Diving?

Sidemount diving offers a completely new way to configure your diving equipment and has taken the diving community by storm over the last few years. Sidemount diving offers great streamlining capability and helps divers to improve their propulsion and trim. This has an immediate effect on your air consumption, and makes you a more efficient diver. Sidemount diving is also ideal for divers with back problems!
