The DiveDIR team have been hectic! Gareth and Im had a great weekend coaching Liam weekend before last: ascent drills to get those speeds nailed. Then back to Vobster last weekend for another great weekend of coaching - this time Pat and Andrew as a buddy pair, refining buoyancy skills, SMB deployment and ascents again. These guys had the benefit of the whole DiveDIR team as Neil came down to join us on the sunday. What's up next? Fundies upgrades on Sunday for Brendan and Nicky on sunday this week - can't wait to see the fruits of their labour. The following weekend Garf is stepping into his role as a GUE Instructor Trainer and putting Im and Neil through their paces. A quick breather and then DiveDIR are off together to MEXICO!!! Cave 1 here we come...couldn't be more excited.

Imogen met Gareth in 2008 and discovered GUE simultaneously while diving in a pool. She did her Fundamentals class in 2010 and obtained her Tech 1 certification in 2011. Cave 1 is booked for September this year in Mexico with the rest of the DiveDIR team. To add further strings to her bow, Imogen is a GUE Fundamentals Instructor Intern. Imogen has an eye for detail, and is a superb video diver, missing nothing and debriefing the people we coach with gentle but ruthless accuracy. Imogen's favourite dives are those which combine wrecks with sea life; and she has dived all around the UK, in addition to Malta, Croatia and South East Asia.
