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.
i got very interested to come diving to Narvik. Are there anyone here who dive in that area and possibly with M/S Galten ? I wonder which wrecks are nice to dive and which is just scrap metal Appreciate any hints.
I would like to thank you for all the good advises regarding scooters I read already...So I made a decision... I've just baught a (used) Suex ADV 18 and I'm looking forward to dive it the first time on sunday :-)
Some "Tuning-Parts" are already ordered as well (N-Handle, Proplock,...)
Quick wonder, does anyone know if a DUI dry suit bag, when full with a suit and other gubbins suitable and fit hand luggage sizes for BA flights. I want to say yes but does anyone have first hand experience?
At the moment I'm diving in a place where I can only use single tank. I have been trying to figure out what would be the best placement of hoses when using an Apeks DST first stage.
In the pic you can see how I have done it now (I use dry suit, so I need an inflator hose for it). I think the solution is quite ok (long hose from the 5th port) except for the back up which in this setup makes quite a big extra loop.
Is this the best I can have or could I do it... [Read More]
I've been lurking here for a while, and it's about time I introduce myself.
My diving career is rather short; a year this december. As most, it started with PADI OW, then AOW followed shortly after.
My motivation for starting to dive was cave diving. Since I started diving in the winter, most of the people I dived with were really committed and many were part of the large group of GUE divers in and around Oslo. I was quickly determined to... [Read More]
I've been diving for about a year now. First got NAUI OW but was very dissatisfied with the shallowness of the education. Proceeded to CMAS 2* this summer and have just completed CMAS Nitrox. The last course was run by a GUE instructor who included a bit of DIR principles in his teaching. I've been DIR-curious since day one and my first set of gear was bp/w for singletank and longhose on the first stage. Next year I'm going to D12... [Read More]
The final 13 pics for this year's photo contest have been posted and somewhat to my surprise I have been included in there.
This means that my pic will be included in the 2014 Santi calendar, but also that I stand a chance of winning a Santi Heating System Set. I somewhat rashly told my wife that if I won I would let her have it, so to save me an ear-bashing I would appreciate it if you could make your way over to SANTI... [Read More]
