Nothing. They have a different regime and ways to conduct their dives, the equipment they buy, its configuration and so on. It was developed initially for cave diving and many "open sea/open water" divers find DIR diving counter-productive.

The thing about DIR is, is everyone else who are not DIR, DIW? How right is DIR?

I only take certain aspects of it. As a military person, I was taught to adapt and improvise.

Hi Everyone!

DIR it's bigger in Canada and US . all about philosophies, team diving , gas plan management, trim, equipment, failure piont and etc. We normally dive with double setup configurations, can light, Backplate/wing with continues harness setup.

it's like a open water course . 4 days course $500 US. they call it  Fundamentals course. pass or fail.!!! good course to take in future if you want to improve your diving technique . such OOG , valve drill, and etc  but you need alots of practice before you take this course, we saw exprience technical diver fail during the class. it's more easily done in warm water like malaysia or Singapore compared to where i live now..Canada.. drysuit and double steel tank.

cheers

Zaha

Maybe you should take some time to read & do some search to know more about GUE & DIR.

It wont take long & is the best way to learn.

Do your search & reading first, ask question after that.

No short-cut with anything.

Why bother getting into all this when you're just doing recreational dives? Don't waste money better spent on gaining dive experience on stuff you don't need.

If you ask me, the key to it all is being streamlined and having a clean configuration. Tuck everything properly, make sure they're secure. The most important thing is to have good buoyancy control and making sure your AAS and gauges don't drag corals with them.
