You teach DIR and all of the associated philosophy. As such, I believe it is ethical that you post with your instructor status and any financial gain that you receive from sales of associated equipment. Similar to how Ken Kurtis and any number of other instructors do.

The board rules are fairly specific about disclosure.

# You must be honest about where you're coming from. You can brag about a product or service, but if you're connected with that product or service, say so, somewhere in your message.
# Promotional posts are limited no more than one post per thirty day period, per person, enterprise, or event. It does not matter if the thing being promoted is free or paid. These posts include, but are not limited to:

1. dive trips
2. dive classes
3. dive club meetings
4. dive equipment sales
5. demonstrations
6. lectures

This rule means that any individual user can make only one promotional post of any kind every thirty days. If that user has more than one event to promote, he/she must combine those in their one allowed post. This rule also means that any given event my only be promoted one time in a thirty day period. Subsequent posts by other users, promoting the same event, are not allowed and will be deleted. Exceptions to this rule are posts about DFG & MPLA/MLMA meetings, and certain charitable events such as the annual Chamber Day event. Events qualifying for exception will be determined by the webmaster.
