Anti Wave Performance Starting Blocks:

Top Performance starts for all swimmers:

Since 1972 Anti Wave has been at the forefront of Starting Block innovation and development, paving the road ahead for increased start times for top performance competition swimmers, and also providing a range of quality, top value starting block options for general training and club use.

First used at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin Germany, for may years Starting Blocks were simple box platforms which the swimmers began their swim. Since then, these platforms have undergone important and marked changes in design, materials and functionality.

Arguably the single most important and progressive innovation for starting blocks took place with Anti Wave’s development of the Start Block Track Start system in the early 2000’s.  Inspiration was taken from track and field competition, and introduced into starting blocks through an angled and adjustable wedge at the rear of the Starting Block, from which swimmers push off from with their rear foot

The Anti Wave Starting Block Moveable Track Start System was first developed in 2002. Anti Wave produced the first ever Track Start Block for Olympic competition at Beijing 2008 WaterCube venue.  Today our top performance SuperBlock 800 and SuperBlock 750 models both enlist this innovative technology to ensure that fastest start times for all swimmers.

The Fixed Track Start model Anti Block 600 models (shown right below) are a favourite for smaller club and school facilities, and feature the fixed track start wedge on the rear of the top for secure and fast starts.
