I've been attracted by sidemount for a while now (just seems like a more comfortable experience) but not 100% sold. I did, though, just get two AL40 stage/pony bottles. Once I get comfortable with diving them tandem with my backgas, can anyone think of a reason I can't just leave my main tank off and go "sidemount" diving with tankless backplate and wing? I know it won't be a perfect imitation of sidemount but I'm very curious to try it.

I dive with sidemount folks regularly so I'm comfortable with procedures and mechanics. I'm curious if anyone can think of a reason this is a bad idea and/or I've overlooked something from a gear/equipment perspective. Only issue I can think of is trim trickiness but I've got plenty of bolt-able weight I can put nearly anywhere on my plate so I don't think that should be too troublesome once I give it a go in the shallows.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Edit: To clarify, I'm under no delusions that diving stage bottles with a tankless BPW makes me a sidemount diver. I'm interested in a dive or two to see if I find a vague approximation of the system annoying and more painful for my personal health conditions (non-dive-dangerous, just pain-inducing after a long day; yes, I've talked to my physician about it and diving) or the opposite. This is simply a low-res approximation of the style to see if there's anything that I specifically don't like about the methodology overall, certainly not a regular habit.

Super excited, completed my PADI open water dive certification today with Perth SCUBA (I highly recommend it to everyone, awesome people). I'm just beginning uni so   Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire I've only bought a "snorkel kit" and I'll have to rent a scuba kit when I want to dive, but after 3 days I'm in love, anyone know any good places to dive? Probably only in Western Australia now but I'll definitely be travelling in the next couple of years, so, if anyone knows some cool spots to dive in WA or a good community to join to find a dive buddy (around my age being 18 would be cool)

Scuba Talk / Perfect time to Dive
« Last post by DarylDixon on 04 Feb 19, 05:21 »
Just a question. You are on a weekend trip to Tioman. During the dive, the divemaster signal to go up say after about 40mins. You still have mobdro.bio/ Lucky Patcher Kodi 100 bar left. Do you carry on with the dive with your buddy or do you go up with the DM, assuming you know your way around ?

Scuba Talk / Diving in Mallorca!!
« Last post by mickenzyjoela on 04 Feb 19, 04:53 »
Hello! I'm planning a trip to Mallorca and want to get some dives in! I have my advanced open water certification and my girlfriend has her open water certification. I have been looking through some websites and really liked Norway Dive. I would like to take a cavern diving class and was wondering if that was even necessary. Other dive sites made it seem like you could enter caves with an OW certification which would be okay as well. Have any of you had experience with this situation?

My 5 year wedding anniversary is this summer and we’re going to do a big scuba trip as we’re both PADI Advanced Open Water divers. I’m looking at either Lighthouse Point by Divetech in George Town, Cayman, or Bans Dive Resort in Koh Tao, Thailand. I’ve traveled out of the country a fair amount but this would be my first visit to either of these. Any advice or info would be so appreciated!
