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.

I've only been diving for a year but adopted the DIR mentality as soon as I got my own equipment. Been diving drysuit and doubles since November 2013 and have around 100 dives so far. I look forward to meet with more locals DIR divers and be part of Project Baseline... [Read More]
I usually dive with a H Explorer and mk17 regs; i think that the optimal routing (in consideraton of the non-optimal routing allowed by mk17) is:
- top of the wing under the regs: as a result the longhose run in front of the wing (between the wing and the diver), under te canister and so on..
OK, I'm happy with my gear and this routing (adviced me by my fund instructor) ...
...but last dive i used a pair of mk 25 and the owner told me that the proper way to Mount this... [Read More]
