PADI Tec Sidemount Course Thailand

Price: 24,900 THB

The PADI Tec Sidemount course can be combined with the PADI Tec Deep program. Although many people prefer to still do their technical training on back mounted doubles then do the PADI Tec Sidemount Diver course to give them the flexibility of diving either way. Sidemounts convenience for putting your cylinders on in the water makes it a popular choice for both cave divers and in open water environments when diving from small boats or long tails.

At Kiwidiver we focus on correct equipment configuration including both tec sidemount harness and cylinder set up. We look at various ways of mounting your cylinders and different bungee methods. Our goal is to give you a toolbox of options each with advantages and disadvantages so whatever diving situation you are in you can configure a solution that works for you with the equipment available.

We have left-hand and right-hand cylinders both in S80 and S40 sizes and we stock many of the accessories you may want.
