  • No Equipment sales on-site, please
  • No Flyers or Banners, if you have some, please do not position them on the stand

  • Electricity
  • A meeting/consultation area (this will require booking ahead of time)

Most people in the dive industry love having fun and active instructors typically love to teach. One thing we all hate is paperwork. Not surprisingly when an incident does occur there is a mad scramble to make sure the paperwork is in place but unfortunately the paperwork is often incomplete or missing. This is certainly not the time to find out.

RAID is proud to announce the update of the RAID Sidemount Diver and Instructor programs.

Sidemount, although invented for cave diving, has become a mainstream recreational and technical equipment configuration. It allows for longer dives and provides the diver with an increased level of redundancy due to carrying two independent cylinders.
