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.

In November Michael from MB Sub sent me over the new Tri LED to test. Fortunately I was able to squeeze in two quality dives before the UK turned into a disaster area. As a result of those dives a modification was carried out to the switching pattern and I got the new head back three weeks ago for re testing. Sadly since then both land and sea diving hasn’t been optimum for video testing. Two attempts at inland sites found... [Read More]
