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.

» Subsurface 4.2 with interaktive planer

Aug 09, 2014 - 10:11 AM - by krautrob

I am proud to announce version 4.2 of Subsurface, the open source five log for all common operating systems.

In particular, I would like to mention the new interactive dive planer that lets you see immediately the resulting dive plan upon changes of parameters (depth, bottom time, gradient factors, gases etc.).

» UTD Z-Sidemount

Aug 03, 2014 - 10:50 AM - by nichtyz
Hi guys! I am new to this community and look forward to learning more from you guys! I am currently using UTD's Z-side mount system. I'm just wondering if there is anyone else here that use this system. I am interested in finding out how can I dive with 3 tanks. Mainly doubles and a deco bottle. When I am diving doubles there just doesn't seem to be space for a 3rd bottle anymore. Thanks in advance for the tips and knowledge shared!

Hi just thought I'd introduce myself.

I don't currently dive DIR style but I'm slowly converting bit by bit. Currently BSAC DL but hoping to do fundies later this year or early next year.
Been lurking for a few weeks on the forum hoping to pick up plenty of tips and advice.
Look forward to chatting to some of you on... [Read More]

Jul 17, 2014 - 4:08 PM - by Anders Jansson

I just wounder if someone who have knowledge or dive with the JJ-CCR GUE-config can give me a brief explanation over how it works and the difference from an ordinary CCR configuration.

I am a non-ccr diver...

Pictures could be cool also.

Thank you, dive safe.
