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.

» Halcyon/DIR Stockists in Bangkok

Nov 11, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by Frax

Me and the other half arrive in Bangkok on Saturday and have the afternoon to do a bit of shopping before heading off down to Koh Tao on the Sunday.

Is there anywhere that stocks Halcyon/DIR equipment in Bangkok, and where is it located (If there is one)?

Thanks in advance,

» Spot availiable in T1 & C1 class in Mexico, feb. 2015

One spot in a cave 1 course running from 15-20 February 2015 in the beautiful Mexican caves.

Both classes will include a extra dive documenting the specific environments with either professional photo or video... [Read More]

These seem pretty popular at the moment. For those that have these or similar cutting tools, are you wearing them on your waist belt in place of or beside the knife and if not where?



» Cave Dive High Springs - December 4th 2014

Nov 04, 2014 - 4:48 AM - by David Dusek
Hello GUE divers,

Anybody's up for a cave dive on December 4th before the GUE conference starts? My buddys don't bring their gear and I would like to do some dive in Florida's caves. We are arriving in the morning, so I have plenty of time to do dive or two before the conference meeting starts in the evening. So, if someone's free or don't have buddy as well, let me know.

Thanks, David

Today I officially became a DIR-certified diver, when I passed UTD Essentials of Tech. It took 3 months of hard work, but in view of that, passing becomes so much more rewarding. Next stop is UTD Tech 1 next spring

» GUE Cave 1 in France next year... any advice?

Oct 21, 2014 - 3:27 PM - by honu
Hi there!

I am super excited as I just signed up for a GUE Cave 1 next year in France (Lot).

Do you guys have any advice, tips etc. for this upcoming adventure?

For example, I am thinking about which gloves to take. I suspect that I'll spend a lot of time in 12C water, so I need... [Read More]
