Welcome to this exciting sport. My father and I have been freediving from one generation to the next and since our venture started our purpose as O.ME.R. distributors has been the same, to provide you with the finest equipment for freediving and spearfishing available on the market. It is our job to make sure our equipment not only meets but also exceeds your expectations. If we wouldn’t use it, we wouldn’t sell it to you.
O.ME.R. is an Italian company. It is the largest producer of freediving and spearfishing equipment in the world. You would be hard pressed to find a serious freediver around the world that has never heard of Omer.
With the input from entry level to professional divers alike, O.ME.R. equipment has been subjected to the most rigorous testing in the world’s seas and under a wide variety of conditions and different environments. Proof lies in the results: National Championships, World Championships, World Records, which have all been accomplished by divers using O.ME.R.. It’s with the input from many of these divers that OMER continuously improves equipment in dynamic and innovative ways.
Our spearguns alone, account for seven known International Underwater Spearfishing Association world records.
Former World Champion Alberto March of Spain who is one of, if not THE, deepest divers in the world, hunting at depths in excess of 150ft while freediving at the recent world meet in Tahiti using OMER.
Freeediving is about being efficient and the same can be said of how the equipment must perform and even more so when it’s used by a breath-hold diver at such depths. The largest Wahoo ever landed to date of 105lbs recently taken in February 2002 was by a diver using Omer equipment. The same can be said for a 610lb Bluefin Tuna taken by a freediver, Frane Zanchi, in the Adriatic Sea off Croatia a few years ago.
Wild underwater animal handlers of the Extreme Encounters Team made up of actress celebrity freediver Mehgan Heaney Grier, animal expert Manny Puigg, and wildlife cinematographer Mark Rackley who made their debut starring on the Animal Planet hit show Extreme Contact, also choose O.ME.R. as their equipment choice.
The list goes on - with the simple point that the personal satisfaction freediving gives a person is just more simply achieved by using good, trustworthy equipment.
More than ever, our products are consistent with our purpose.
