Blog posts from Gareth, Imogen and Neil
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.
Gareth Burrows is a GUE Instructor trainer, and a personal diving coach for recreational and technical divers of all levels, specialising in improving buoyancy control, trim and stability, in-water confidence, and ascent management. He has trained with PADI, TDI, IANTD and GUE as well as serving as a DO in a BSAC branch. He has been diving cold water wrecks in Europe and around the UK for over a decade, and can usually be found diving out of Brighton, Portland or Plymouth. He is qualifying later this year as a cave diver and looking to become a GUE tech1 instructor in the 18 months. He has trained or coached hundreds of divers from newly qualified open water divers, to course directors and technical instructors.
