In his video you will see a neutrally buoyant demonstration of “SMB Deployment”.

Safely deploying an SMB is a vital scuba skill. An SMB is used to signal your position to the surface. It is absolutely mandatory when diving from a boat so that the surface support can track your position while you are underwater.

Deploying an SMB is one of the most difficult skills to master while in trim and maintaining neutral buoyancy. However, with a little practice, the skill will become second nature.

This video is designed to be used by new divers, learning to dive, Divemasters, Instructors and Trainers.

At RAID we believe diving neutrally buoyant is no accident. It’s all about proper training.

Better you have the line/spole connected all the time to the smb – so you save time

Jost B says:

Why exactly do you clip the boltsnap to the line before releasing the dsmb? Wouldn’t it be safer to leave it at the D-Ring? On the line, it might catch on the spool (nicely seen in your video) and result in losing the spool. Would love to here your considerations…
