This just posted on www.5thd-x.com forums. Thought I'd share it.
I'm going to be volunteering my time to help out.
Curious about DIR and the DIR system, but not quite ready to commit until youíve had the chance to try out the gear and see it in action? Or are you simply interested in a bp/w set up, but you want to feel what itís like in the water before you fork out the cash? A 5thD-X Experience Day (XP Day) & Gear Demo sounds like something you need!!
What: 5thD-X XP Day & Gear Demo
When: Saturday, June 18th at 7:00AM
Where: Veteranís Park, Redondo Beach, CA
Who: Anyone who wishes to try out a complete DIR rig, as well as divers who just want to get in some shore diving
At the XP Day, you will get the opportunity to try out a full DIR set up (no charge) and see the gear in action by DIR divers. Itís also a great place for DIR divers to get some more in-water experience/practice.
This is not an instructive event and lessons will not be provided. We will simply provide the gear, get you reasonably fitted into the harness, and then go dive. There may even be an appearance by one of the local GUE instructors.
If you are interested in a gear demo, send an email to XPday@5thd-x.com. The number of rigs are limited, so reserve early! Demo rigs include bp/w, yoke style 1st & 2nd stage regs w/long hose, wrist mounted compass and depth gauge, and fins. You will need to bring your own tanks, weights, exposure protection (hoods and gloves too), and mask.
Please bring your diver certification and proof of local diving in the last three months to demo a DIR system.
