Welcome to Simply Sidemount & Simply Tec
Be unafRAID…seek the adventure within!
Here at Simply Sidemount and Simply Tec, we are dedicated to giving you the best possible recreational and technical tuition, whether that may be in Sidemount, single cylinder backmount or twinset configuration.
We are passionate about all aspects of diving and when we are not teaching we are exploring caves, wrecks and reefs around the world. We hope our enthusiasm for diving is infectious as we aim to create confident, safe divers in a relaxed and fun environment.
By tailoring each course to an individual’s needs we always endeavour to help you achieve your goals and aspirations, safely.
Sidemount diving is a beautiful way to dive, as you can feel so much more balanced and therefore relaxed in the water, but sometimes divers just want to feel just that in whatever discipline they dive.
At Simply Sidemount we can easily help you achieve just that in a relatively short space of time. This will give you a much better platform on which you can develop more skills, for example, in Technical diving.
The video below shows how to achieve balance in a drysuit, without the aid of fins, which divers tend to rely on to stabilise themselves during hovering.
Almost every diver has good buoyancy, the fundamental element of hovering is sometimes overlooked and mistaken for. The skill of hovering is often the most difficult to attain. This, coupled with equipment issues or bad habits can be a somewhat painstakingly long process, taking years sometimes to grasp.
In a wetsuit or drysuit, this initially involves correct distribution of weight (weight of tank/s, lead weights) and buoyancy.
Once the balance is observed and mastered, everything else is very achievable.
