DIR Explorers - the next step in DIR Diving!

Welcome back Unregistered

DIR diving is a fast growing approach to diving. Be it technical or recreational, wreck, cave or reef, DIR diving can be relevant to the diving that you do. Jump in on our DIR forums, find out more about who we are, what we do, and how we do it.

DIRX is a DIR diving forum run by DIR divers for both DIR divers and those who are interested in learning more about our approach to diving. There is a lot of information around on the internet about DIR, we hope to bring it together here, at DIRX, into one resource which each of us can use.

So look around, tell us who you are, what you would like to see from DIRX, ask some questions, post reports of diving that you have done, or would like to do.

Safe Diving all from Graham Blackmore, Brian Allen and all of us in the DIRX Team.

» Tail Weight

Feb 19, 2015 - 4:10 AM - by chrisb07
I have put together a 9 lbs tail weight by bolting together pieces of lead. This is not too pretty and was wondering whether anyone has any idea where I could find a tail weight of at least 9 lbs. I have done some googling and could not find anything available in the US. Any thoughts appreciated. Cheers, Christophe

» Looking for buddies for a couple of days in Mexico

Feb 08, 2015 - 7:21 PM - by galobeast
Hi All, I am a cave 1 diver who will arrive in Puerto Aveturas a couple of days early for some diving in the Mexican Cenotes and I was wondering if there are any teams around who could accommodate an extra diver on 2 and 3 May 2015. I am arriving on 1 May at night and will drive down to stay at Zero Gravity. From 4 May my buddies will arrive (they are coming from Australia and I am in Colombia at the moment so decided to take the chance).

Thank you for your support and hope this... [Read More]

» two regulators on a single tank

Jan 03, 2015 - 10:17 AM - by peterr
I bought two Apex ds4s with xtx 40 second stages for my single 15 l tank with two outlets. I use a Mares Pegasus wing or a Halcyon backplate with
a Halcyon donut.
Can you give me some advice on hose routing, preferably with pictures. Some might think its to much with two regs. on a single tank?

Best Peterr

Has anyone been to the Lot or the Ardeche recently? How were the cave conditions ?

Best wishes,

» Taking my Twinset for a Walk

Dec 12, 2014 - 10:03 PM - by Jack911
So we've decided that we'll do some diving at Dinas, because France is a long way from London and Florida is even further.

That means lugging twinsets up a hill for a considerable distance.

I could just wear my Halcyon harness, but that means all the weight will be on my shoulders.

Better to adopt a backpacking methodology where the weight is borne by a waistband and therefore transferred to the hips.

But how would I do that?

Any... [Read More]

» Anyone fancy a dive: Bavaria next week/week after (7/12-19/12)

Dec 02, 2014 - 4:05 PM - by Elvis
I'm driving to Munich for a couple of weeks at the weekend to visit friends who are not divers, do some sightseeing, etc. I wondering about wether I should bother taking my kit.
I know it's a long shot but is anyone local to Bavaria that fancies a dive?, IS there any local dives? I got a fundies tech pass but since then went all strokey and got a yellow box of death (except it's black) but will dive with anyone (bit of a tart).

Hi all,

Greetings from Singapore! I've just recently completed my GUE Fundamentals with Leon Boey over in Bali, Indonesia. Really keen to learn and pick up lots more DIR approaches to improve myself and find some DIR buddies along the way. Hoping to do Tech 1 within the next year!
