Technical Wreck – Passing Tight Restrictions In Sidemount
A short video clip taken from my current sidemount technical wreck class (Jan 2016). The student is passing his first serious restriction whilst line-laying inside the USS Majaba (El Capitan) wreck in Subic Bay.
Passing restrictions, even in sidemount, might look easy (if scary!), but there are a number of critical factors to consider. A cool head and some patience is absolutely necessary. The diver must, at all times, have full access to all their gas…. and communication must be possible between members of the dive team. It’s also important to have some contingencies pre-planned in case a diver gets entrapped, or suffers equipment damage.
