Cover your reg and mask with you right hand. Hold you danglies (console, spg, depth gauge ect) with the left against your waist/weight belt. Move toes to the egde of the deck, check the water below to make sure its clear of other divers, look at the horizon, step out with one leg with the other to follow making sure to clear the deck with your cylinder. Dont jump, step off.

Hold reg in mouth and mask with one hand, look straight ahead and take the biggest step you can- pretty easy really. Don't overthink it, just step out big!

The name speaks for itself giant stride

Stride =  a long, decisive step.

Easier than you think. Hold you mask and reg and just take a long step.  Make sure no one is beneath you and all your hoses are attached. Look straight ahead.
