Talking to Steve Davis the New Zealand based host of the Speaking Sidemount podcast.
Over a brew Steve tells me about his love for wreck and cave diving, his choice of his choice of KISS Sidewinder Rebreather and a bunch of skills and tips to help me with my progression.
Grab yourself a brew and listen to this interesting story.
🔴 More about this week’s episode:
Steve Davis is the host of the acclaimed podcast, “Speaking Sidemount”, author of the books, “The Canterbury Wreck - A Diver’s Guide” and “Sidemount Fundamentals” and is the principal instructor and founder of Sidemount Pros.
As a child, Steve was inspired by the television series, "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau" and by pioneer New Zealand divers such as Kelly Tarlton. He started snorkelling at the age of six before he could even really swim. From there Steve has always had a connection with the sea and diving.
Steve joined the Royal New Zealand Navy in 1980 and enjoyed a successful 14-year career culminating in him being the Marine Engineer Officer of the Leander Class Frigate, HMNZS Canterbury. Now sunk as a dive wreck in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, his old ship is one of his favourite dives both personally and for various training courses.
As a former "Chief Engineer" of Canterbury, it is not an understatement to say that Steve knows "every rivet" on this ship and loves to share this with other suitably qualified divers. Based on his intimate knowledge of Canterbury, Steve has authored the book 'The Canterbury Wreck - A Diver's Guide' now available from the Sidemount Pros Store and Amazon.

✅ “Fancy a brew?” a Scuba Diving inspired chat over a brew about life, adventure, mental and physical resilience and determination to succeed in the sport we love.
✅ The podcast where I’ll be talking to those who influenced me as a diver, about their incredible experiences and how they found mental and physical resilience, whilst devoting their lives to Scuba Diving. These will (hopefully) be insightful and exciting discussions about people taking on scuba diving and its challenges, and how they came out the other side stronger through finding inspiration in connecting with nature’s underwater world.
