Biographie de l'auteur

Rob Neto has been sidemount diving for over a decade. He began diving sidemount while living in Arizona after having seen it during one of his cave diving trips to Florida. He was intrigued with it and built his first sidemount rig from a harness and wing he had and went diving. Like everything else he has done with diving, it just took off from there. Over the years he has experimented with various methods and sidemount rigs and currently uses three different sidemount rigs depending on the diving he is doing. Rob currently lives in Greenwood, Florida, located in Jackson County, just minutes from some of the best cave diving in Florida. He dives sidemount almost exclusively even when traveling on recreational dive trips. He is an avid cave diver and cave explorer. He has done exploration in Florida and Mexico and is currently active in several projects. Much of the exploration he does is in sidemount size cave passage and he has even broken a stainless steel belt buckle going through a small, two bottle off restriction! Rob has extensive experience diving both steel and aluminum cylinders, using multiple stage cylinders, and sidemounting his rebreather bailout cylinders. He is an active scuba instructor and teaches a customized, photograph feedback sidemount course.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Some good tips, but find a good sm intructor 6 août 2016
Par shotokita - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Neto is correct, it's almost comprehensive as a book. Of course, there is no way to learn sidemount from a book. This book merely offers information on configuration and some fundamentals of diving in sidemount. I found that for me, trial and error is the best way. I already have all the DIR techniques for backmount, am very comfortable in either singles or doubles, so the transition to sidemount was mainly about configuration. Once I figured out how everything should work (and why it works - which this book helped with) I just went out and spent about 1/2 hour messing around before I went underwater. Once I went underwater, I felt at home, and sidemount became quite natural for me. I believe in the UTD concept of keeping DIR the same for backmount and sidemount - long and short hoses, maybe a manifold for twins. I don't know if any of the information in this book helped me as I am already a dive instructor and as I said, quite proficient in DIR diving. However, Neto offers some nice tips worth thinking about and trying. And he always says that each diver is different and has to try different things. My feeling is that if you are not a competent DIR diver already, get instruction from a good instructor in DIR skills first (GUE, UTD, etc.) Sidemount is somewhat different, but very easy to pick up if you already have the DIR skills. If not, the skills are the key.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I was glad to see this book come out 30 septembre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have known Rob for a number of years now. I was glad to see this book come out. There are many "sidemount" classes being taught by those who have no idea what they are doing. Had they read this book they may not be embarrassing themselves as they are. The book is a good introduction to sidemount diving while at the same time not preaching one particular style or configuration. I've been diving sidemount since 2012 and teaching OW sidemount since 2014. With about 250 dives in 3 different configurations I feel qualified to say that this book will put new sidemount users ahead of some instructors that purport to teach the discipline.

I have watched the bull crap that has been spread about Rob by those who, themselves, have little to no room to talk when it comes to ethics. Rob is among the top 5 instructors I recommend to my own students for cave training based on personality, availability, and ultimate goals of my students. I'm a wreck diver and instructor with no real desire to play around in caves. If I did decide to give them a shot Rob would be on my short list of persons to train with. The cave diving community is full of ego's, petty differences, and idea's about training. I am fortunate to be able to look beyond agency and shop politics being an insider to the industry. There are a lot of instructors that don't like me because I call them on their crap. The proof though is in the product we put out in the form of safe, skilled, competent, and responsible divers.

I also find it funny that a bad review is based not on the content of the book itself but on the opinion of one disgruntled individual.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 well-written, informative book 11 octobre 2015
Par Jaco's Friend - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a well-written, informative book on sidemount diving. In contrast to many diving related books, including sidemount diving, this book is not generic but specific, and the author has a talent for writing. You don't come away thinking: just wasted money on generalities (that could be summarized in a few pages), and this person should not be writing for public consumption. Steve Lewis, among a few others (now including Rob Neto), are in the category of people who produce well-written, informative diving related books.

Perhaps the audience that would most benefit from the book are beginning and experienced sidemount divers. The second group might include those thinking about sidemount diving and "experts" (sidemount cave divers and instructors). For those with only limited open water experience (e.g., AOW) who are thinking about sidemount diving, the book would be useful in conveying the myriad complexities associated with picking rigs and trimming them out, but they might not be able to fully understand some of the "how to's" in the book. The author provides specific information, in some cases, imbued with subtleties that comes from years of diving/teaching sidemount in caves and open water. It would be unusual for a book that's informative to beginning and experienced divers to be fully comprehensible to open water novices.

The book's strengths include: The author alerts the reader to issues he/she should be cognizant of, in many instances, suggesting solutions without dogmatically fixating on one over others. The author has his preference, based on his own extensive experience, but he leaves it at that. A beginning sidemount diver, reading material on the Internet, will have difficulty distinguishing wheat from the chaff. It is here where Rob Neto's book provides the most valuable service. For experienced sidemount divers, the book provides perspectives on rigging and technique that may further enhance their own diving.

Every book has weaknesses and this book is no exception. In my evaluation (5 stars), the positive far outweigh the negatives, but they are pointed out for future reference and completeness. There are a number of typos (and a repeated phrase) that can be fixed in a second edition. This is common for a first edition book, and, most importantly, the typos are few and obvious (some can change meaning/add confusion) so that they are not distracting. The photographs are in color but some (especially those that help explicate the text) will benefit from better resolution. There is always a trade-off with print cost, but an issue to be considered. A kindle edition may provide an easy fix for an electronic version. One of the strengths of the book is that it is focused and brief (about 120 pages), but invariably some relevant topics are not included as alluded in the subtitle of the book. One of them, under rigging, is the choice of fins which tends to be more of an issue for sidemount than backmount diving. Another is selection cylinder valves. Not major issues but ones that may benefit from being included in an "almost comprehensive guide." Lastly, some of the text describing issues/solutions may be further clarified by including additional pictures/illustrations.

In summary, in this reviewer's opinion, this is the best book on sidemount diving currently available, well-written and informative, that fills a void left by more generic sidemount books and that serves as a reference point for "expert" opinion on the Internet.

Format: Broché
Rob Neto hasn't been diving that long, 4 of the 5 recognized cave diving agencies have KICKED HIM OUT (NACD, NSS-CDS, IANTD, PSAI). He appears to be a very dishonest person with a long history of violating instructor guidelines and placing his students in unsafe situations.

This message is for Rob Neto himself. Please, make the kindle version happen! You would be VERY surprised how many people are declining buy paper books. Paper books are gone. There are many factors envolved. Globalization is one of them. Not all readers live in US!! Im from South America. Please, where is the kindle version of it?

ps: i didnt read the book and my students coudlnt buy it because we dont have acess to paper version. If was kindle, at least 10 new sidemounted divers would be talking about Rob Neto techiciques right now.........

Think about it!
