The Original - Surface Marker WDS

First introduced in 2006 the Surface Marker WDS is being used by thousands of Dive Instructors and Dive Professionals all over the world.
The Open Ended Surface Marker buoy used in combination with the Webbing Deployment System (WDS) is a compact & easy to use solution for sending up a Surface Marker Buoy during your Safety Stop.

The Surface Marker WDS is an ALL-IN-ONE ready to use SMB Set

What's Included:

  • WDS - Webbing Deployment System

  • Orange-Yellow Surface Marker Buoy

  • BCD attachable Carry Pouch

Recommended deployment from your Safety Stop for all  Recreational Divers and Dive Profesionals

  • The WDS eliminates the need to carry a dedicated reel or spool.

  • The Open-Ended Buoy has the advantage that it is more compact than Self-Sealing Buoys and can emptied quickly at the end of the dive for stowage.

  • Will  fit into almost any BCD pocket

  • The included Carry Pouch can be used for external  BCD attachment. Compact enough to take  on every dive.

  • Ideal for your diving holiday when weight and space are of the essence.

  • Made from durable 210D Nylon with welded  seams and stitched edge  tape to prevent fraying.

Colors: Orange-Yellow. With both an orange and a yellow panel this is by far the most visible combination for the recreational diver.

  • The orange panel is more visible in bright sunlight and significant glare.

  • While the yellow panel will prove its worth as light deteriorates or the clouds move in.


Making it safer and simpler to deploy your Safety Sausage or Delayed Surface Marker Buoy from your safety stop.* The WDS is made from strong nylon red-white webbing and comes equipped with a Marine Grade Brass Snap Hook for attachment to the Surface Buoy and a stainless steel ring for diver deployment.

• Maintenance Free: No moving parts or knobs to adjust

• Compact: Can be stowed by rolling it into the buoy

• Effortless gathering upon ascent - The WDS5.5 is ready for the next dive

* The WDS comes with deployment instructions making it easy to understand proper procedures and uses.
