I suppose i'll start by telling you all a bit about myself, my names Barry I'm nearly 33 and have been diving since Feb this year and boy am i hooked, I am PADI AOW at the moment but joining my local BSAC next year to gain more skills and expierance before going for the DIR-F which i'd like to do late next year. I have been slowly building up my equipment, at present i dive with a DIR ZONE single cylinder wing with S/S backplate and one piece harness with 5' long hose and all the other hoses at the correct length, there is still a fare bit of kit i need to complete my setup but that will come when funds are more available.

Hi, and welcome. Are you in GB or in Oakland, California, as your profile suggests? If the latter, I would highly recommend getting into contact with BAUE. They are pretty active, and there are several instructors around as well.
