About Us

Apneautic is a company focused on the development, production and sales of high-end equipment for freediving. History of the company goes back to 2006 when the brand APNEAMAN – Martin Zajac started manufacturing first training buoys and backpacks for long fins as well as for monofin. In 2011, the first common and very successful Nose Clip Apnea Academy was, in cooperation with Václav Hofmann, released for commercial sale. At the beginning of 2012 our common plans for further development of equipment have eventually brought us to the point where we decided to establish new brand called APNEAUTIC.

Top world class freedivers are involved in development and testing of all of our products which are made to the last detail – see team APNEAMAN. High quality craftsmanship, high quality materials and development methods (freedivers to freedivers) ensure not only nice design and long durability, but also high performance, value and safety of our products. We are delighted to say that popularity of our product continues to grow which can be seen in increasing number of our dealers all around the world – See dealer network.
