Sidemount buddy for Dutch Springs 2017 season

I have spent the past few seasons building and diving some DIY sidemount configurations and have pretty much settled in on a final setup that works great for me in all conditions. Now I would like to put some of this experience and extra gear to use for the benefit of someone besides myself.

If you are in the process of, or thinking about, converting over from back mount to sidemount diving and would like to try out a few of the setups I have put together to see how they work for you before deciding on the direction you want to go, let’s meet up at Dutch and do some diving. I’m getting bored with all the solo diving I’ve been doing there the past few years and it would be nice to have a buddy to dive with and maybe assist in selecting / modifying a sidemount config that works for them.

I’ve got a wealth of info in my head about what worked and did not work well for me, so maybe somebody out there wants to take advantage of that to streamline their own process of switching over.

I just switched over to sidemount last dive season and have just over 70 dives under my belt. I’m trying to get to over 100 this season so I can complete Tec Deep. If you’re looking for a regular dive buddy feel free to PM me. I also dive dry so can get going as early as this spring when the park opens.
