Anti Wave marks 44 years of supplying high performance aquatic equipment

Anti Wave marks 44 years of supplying high performance aquatic equipment
September 8, 2014

Founded in Australia in 1971, high performance aquatic equipment supplier Anti Wave International has recently marked over 40 years in business.

The company’s first major success was in supplying the revolutionary, patented 'Anti Goal' for water polo at the Munich 1972 Olympic Games.

Anti Wave’s swimming racing lanes were then patented and selected for the 1975 FINA World Championships in Cali, Colombia.

Anti Wave’s swimming starting block, ‘Track Starts’, invented in 2002, have been used worldwide since their introduction at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Anti Wave International is now the largest global maker of high performance swim and water polo equipment.

With licensed production in eight countries, Anti Wave designs and technologies are now in their fifth decade of aquatic sports equipment development for over 44 years, and continue to set the world standard for design and quality.

As Anti Wave founder Anti Kajlich explains “at Anti Wave International we guarantee to our Customers that we will be different and continually innovative in our designs and approach, that we will produce top quality equipment with an emphasis on function and affordability and that our products are readily available worldwide, backed by top service.”

In addition to his business success, Anti Kajlich has enjoyed over 60 years of playing water polo as goalkeeper, playing across all levels of the game including international competition.

This year Kajlich and his team, the H2Oldies, won the Gold Medal in Montreal at the FINA Masters 2014 World Championships – with Anti being the first ever competitor aged over 70 years.

Kajlich adds "I and my son Anton are looking forward to our next 44 years of cooperation and service to aquatic sports!”

In Australia, Anti Wave products are available from Anti Wave/S.R. Smith (SRS Australia) on 09 3812 2283, E:,
