He has always been fascinated by the underwater world, and from the very beginning of his diving journey, he has been associated with the wrecks of the Baltic Sea. Currently, he has completed several thousand dives in various places around the world. He dives mainly technically, wreck and cave. Fascinated by rebreathers and underwater photography. Tomek is an Instructor Trainer, CCR and OC instructor for technical, cave, wreck and sidemount diving in several training agencies. For over 10 years, he has been sharing his knowledge with others, focusing on high quality training.
He also requires quality from diving equipment which must be of the highest quality and reliability to meet the requirements of everyday dives in varied and difficult conditions. These requirements can certainly be met by D-Luxe straps and loop covers, thanks to which they have become a permanent part of his primary equipment.
My name is Marissa Eckert and I know from my first discover scuba dive that I wanted to be an instructor and share the beauty of the underwater world with others. Fast forward to a life changing trip to the Florida springs where I decided being a cave instructor was my path in life. I knew if I could share the beauty of our aquifer with others they would just have no choice but to care about it. So I packed all my belongings and I moved to Florida. I pursued my dreams and became a cave instructor and dive shop owner. I lived in Florida for 13 years teaching cave, technical, and rebreather diving while also honing in my underwater photography skills. During those 13 years I also traveled the world, especially the cenotes of Mexico every chance I got. Now I call Mexico my home, specific Tulum and I love it here. Nothing brings me more joy then sharing my passion for diving with others, whether it be through instruction, guiding or photography!
Hi, i’m Kurt. I’m a Technical CCR/Cave Instructor for IANTD, based in Belgium. I started my diving career in Egypt when I was on holiday. My niche is technical diving, specifically CCR diving. I now like to pass on the passion of caves and mines to my students. Most of the time in Belgium, you can find me in the flooded mines, where I like to explore. I am a member of a team that has mapped some beautiful, deep abandoned mines on Belgian territory. When I am not teaching, I take my camera with me to show people the beauty of the underwater world. Using the D-luxe straps has been a big change in my diving, especially in cold water diving with thicker wet gloves or Dry gloves. It has made teaching and practicing skills much easier and cleaner. you can hang everything nice and tight against your cylinders
I started diving 2000 after finish serving in army. After reading the “the Last Dive”, that fascinated his mind and attracted him into Tech Diving while finally finish his IANTD Trimix diver course in 2005. Then slowly move on to wreck diver, cave diver, DPV Diver, instructors, then finally become IANTD instructor trainer in 2015. The only Tech-Diving-Focus Dive Center, Dark Tide Tech Dive Expedition Base, was founded by Phil in 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. 2017, Phil jump into the silent world, to take JJ CCR divers course for first move to CCR diving, finally in 2019 certified as JJ CCR Mod 2 diver/ IANTD Normoxic Trimix Plus Diver by Phil Short and also certified by Dave Thompson as JJ CCR Mod 1 instructor.
Born in Canada, I was raised around the water and it’s always been a part of my life. While I didn’t start teaching diving until 2015, teaching water sports has been the only job I’ve ever had. These days I am based in Mexico with Protec Dive Centers and spend my days in the cenotes teaching cave, rebreather and technical diving. My free time is spent exploring new caves/systems with the team, where having equipment that is functional, durable and consistent is super important. The D°LUXE dive bands have filled that role perfectly. No more broken bands or last minute bungie creations. A few style points doesn’t hurt either!
I am a TDI Instructor Trainer based in Bali, Indonesia. Originally from Germany, I became a diver when travelling around the world in 2003. After a few years of diving on a holiday, I signed up for my Divemaster course whilst living in Scotland and never really looked back. Since 2010, I have worked as a full-time diver and instructor, becoming a technical diver in 2011 and a technical diving instructor in 2015. So far, tech diving has taken me to various parts of Indonesia, the Red Sea, Scotland and Truk Lagoon. Whilst living in Scotland, my technical diving was focused on wrecks. In Indonesia, it has been mainly about exploring deep reefs and pinnacles. Ever since first discovering Sidemount Diving, I’ve been a little bit in love with the configuration and its flexibility and adjustability. Any of my sidemount students will be used to reviewing videos and spending time figuring out how to tweak things just a little more. Every single adjustment makes a difference. None of these are possible without the right gear for the job, so it’s great to be part of the D-Luxe Dive Gear Team and be given the opportunity to use these hard-wearing – and good-looking – tank straps.
I am Paolo Sperti I am 46 years old and I live in South of Italy in Lecce. I am a Trimix and CCR REVO REBREATHER diver. I have been diving for over 25 years. My team and me take care of exploration and search for historical wrecks. I am happy to become the first Italian brand ambassador of D-Luxe, and support the company mission, and actively collaborate on this “underwater” adventure and grow together as a great Team. I tried the D-luxe bands a few months ago, honestly I was skeptical having had other bands from other brands, but I was immediately pleasantly impressed both by the strength of the bands and by the quality of the materials with which they are built, which make it easy and long lasting. Use in any diving condition and above all, very importantly, they can be used easily even with watertight gloves. The best thing is that they are completely customizable both in the various sizes, both in the colors and in the writings and in the logos to be applied. I myself have customized my bands with my lettering and my logo, and now they cover all my bailout cylinders and I would not change them for anything else on the market.
Hi, my name is Nicolas. I am a technical diving & sidemount instructor at Plongée TEC Suisse on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. In order to share our passion, we created the Dive TEC! Event, the exhibition for underwater exploration in Switzerland. One of the fundamental pillars in diving, apart from physiology, mental and techniques, is equipment. Each configuration and piece of equipment must have a value and meet an objective. This is why I am happy to use and represent D°LUXE products.
As long as I can remember I have had an affinity to water. Since I learned to dive in 1992, nothing could keep me away from being in the water anymore. In 2008, I qualified as a TDI Advanced Gas Blender, TDI Extended Range Diver, TDI Intro to Tech, TDI Nitrox Blending Technician, and a TDI Trimix Diver. In 2012 I became a Sidemount Diver, completing my TDI Full Cave education in 2013. Since 2012 I have invested all my time, energy and money in learning and teaching Sidemounting. It is a lifestyle – you will never see me again with tanks on my back. Diving Sidemount can be an enlightening experience – it is extremely versatile, flexible and minimalist. I enjoy teaching SDI and TDI Sidemount diving and have been a TDI Sidemount Instructor since 2014. I have had the pleasure to dive and live in Malta, Switzerland, Mexico, Martinique, Guadaloupe, Dominica, Bequia, Turkey, Brazil, and the Canary Islands. Quality is my passion and I love to travel as much as possible to explore the beauty of our wonderful planet.
Travel light – be the light!
Let this sink in: The planet Earth is called the Blue Planet. This blue color is caused by reflection from the oceans which cover roughly 71% of the area of the Earth. By weight, the average human adult male is approximately 65% water. The first 9 months of our life we are surrounded by water. Water seems to be fundamental for our existence …… and one of the most impressive ways to experience water is Sidemount Diving.
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
Hi, my name is Max. I started diving when I was just 8 years old and slowly developed to one of the most active European Cave Explorers. My diving is very characterised by DIR-Style diving. Some caves need Wetsuits and OC-Sidemount to squeeze through muddy restrictions and some caves need Dual CCR and two scooters to penetrate many kilometres into huge tunnels. I love remote caves where the logistic is the key to success. My favourite Project is the Blautopf cave System in South Germany, where i am exploring whenever it is possible. To accomplish all these demanding dives you simply need the best and toughest gear. As I live very Close to Sven I follow the development of the tank straps from the very beginning. We often develop new ideas to make exploration easier and our gear tougher. I can really say from hundreds of rough dives that especially the Tank-straps are absolutely exploration capable.
