TDI SIDEMOUNT SF2
AIR DILUENT DECOMPRESSION PROCEDURES DIVER
What scuba gear will you use?
You’ll use standard tec diving equipment appropriate for the local environment, including your exposure suit, mask, fins and weight system. Snorkels are optional, but a collapsible snorkel can be carried in your pocket. You’ll also need a Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) and reel, an audible surface signaling device, slate and a compass.
