"SSDA makes recreational Sidemount scuba divers unique, mobile, light and cool.”

Truly ejoyed Eva's coaching. She was very clear with her instructions and very patient as well. Most importantly. She was willing to provide advice on other scuba related topic. Fruitful training sessions :)

Sidemount has been nothing but short of amazing experience. It feels like I'm diving without an air tank when I'm under the sea. It gave you the thrill of diving into small enclosed area where backmount doesn't allows you to. Don't be judgy about sidemount until you give it a try. Besides, why not be adventurous and try out something new? ;)

‘Eva was my side-mount speciality instructor. I was lucky to meet her during one of leisure dives. Personally, it was so cool to dive differently and I am always eager to try out new things. After an on-line course, I have a better understanding of this cool way of diving. Sidemount is much more natural, easier and safer to dive than backmount, e.g. it provides the flexibility to dive with two independent air supply system with two separate tanks. Sidemount is the most natural way of diving which brings diver closer to the underwater and more connected with the environment. The other amazing thing to me is that I can dive without any weights as
Sidemount is giving me perfect buoyancy, which gives me a wonderful feeling of freedom. As what mentioned in Eva's logo, I become UML - unique, mobile and light... Thanks to Eva! I love this feeling a lot!
Eva was always positive and encouraging during the course. She made the course interesting, even during the pool sessions. She taught me how to feel the buoyancy of my body and frog kicks. Thanks to her recommendation, I managed to buy a cool jet fins and unique BCD at a discounted rate.
If you would like to try out this unique, safer and cooler way of diving. I would recommend her as your instructor. Dive safely & have fun, buddy! May the force be with you :D
