Interested or curious about GUE but never had the opportunity to see what the fuss is about or ask questions from people that will give you straight answers??
Then this day is for you.
For only £25 you will receive guidance on your diving skills, video feedback and tips on how to improve your diving skills, and an insight into the GUE style of diving, without having to make a heavy investment in time or money. We’ll show you how to make your fin kicking more effective, how to take the stress out of ascents, and even how to swim backwards.
This day is aimed at recreational and technical divers looking into GUE for the first time. You don’t need any specific gas, any specific equipment. As long as you have an open water qualification then you can just turn up and take part.
We will create an environment where people feel free to ask whatever questions like they like, and to watch demonstrations of the skills we teach, and even get some video feedback and advice on their own skills.

Organising several of these events throughout the year costs a significant amount of time and money. Nonetheless, I feel it important that these events continue to be run as non-profit. So the small registration fee is there to encourage those who sign up to turn up, and also to cover some of the direct costs of organising the event. Other than these direct costs, all proceeds from the event will go to the RNLI. Please note that all participants must be non-smokers.
These events have become so popular that I have had to limit the registration to keep the numbers small. This enables us to answer everyone’s questions, and also to have time to look at everyone in the water. So, registration for this event is limited to 10 people.
Registration is now open. If you have any questions about this event, please do not hesitate to contact Gareth (Garf) Burrows. Please note that this is a non-profit event. all proceeds beyond direct costs go to the RNLI.
To attend this event, all you need to do is register at DiveDIR.
If you need accomodation there are Wooden wigwams on site at The National Diving & Activity Centre.
Food and drink is available at the View Cafe Bar
These events are always a great laugh, and people seem to get a lot out of them. Here’s what they have said in the past…
I just could not believe the skill level of these divers. It’s one thing to
know you are below the bar, it’s quite another to realise the bar can
be set far higher than you thought possible.
presumed the GUE instructors would be boot-camp military types,
but they were just very relaxed and laid back divers – albeit divers
with incredible knowledge and skill, and the ability to pass on that
knowledge. In all honesty I went to prove a point, but after an
hour realised I had a lot to learn.
A day’s education from two GUE instructors for £25?
whether you were interested in GUE or not a lot of people
must be kicking themselves for missing this
I realised two things in the first hour. Firstly, the bar set
by GUE standards is like nothing I have experienced before.
Secondly these guys do not preach – but they are incredibly
well trained to teach
As a single tank diver, I expected to feel like an alien,
but was welcomed to the crowd. Forget about the fact
it was a GUE day. It was just a bunch of divers enjoying
