Official Razor Side Mount System Instructor
Place of Residence:
Growing up in Eastern-Germany during the times of the Cold War only gave me access to double-hose regulators and russian Military-Rebreathers during my first dives.
When Niccolò finally got to use modern diving equipment, it changed the whole world for him. Ever since, he liked to experiment new gear and use it to explore unknown places in his area. Those are the best prerequisites to get into technical diving and it wouldn`t take long for Niccolò to get active in that kind of diving.
Diving - with all its fascinating underwater world & fish life and the joy of being weightless, became his absolute passion.
After a back injury a couple of years ago he needed to reconsider his configuration and tried sidemount diving. The ease and comfort that came with all the other advantages, convinced him to stick to it until now. Even during his CCR dives he prefers that way of diving.
Niccolò runs his diving center in Leipzig together with his wife. Octopus Dive Academy exists since over three years and offers the whole range of OC and CCR diving with a strong focus on sidemount diving.
So becoming a Razor Instructor was his longtime goal which he accomplished in 2016 and he is proud to offer the Basic Side Mount Course now, too.
So, to sum it up - Octopus diving academy is your partner in eastern germany when it comes to sidemount and technical diving.
