To break with the traditional colors of diving gear, SUBMIND developped it's own printing process, and it's will to add Fun and dynamism into freediving, building a new identity for Freedivers.
Our three logos represent the three dimensions: time, horizontal, vertical, and three freediving disciplines: static, dynamic, depth.
SUBMIND is first and foremost about passion.
In October 2013, Matthias, a young French engineer, was sitting behind his desk at work, bored to death. He began daydreaming about going freediving in the calm, peaceful waters of the Red Sea. In a snap decision, he made his dream come true. He booked a flight to Egypt to spend New Year’s Eve in the water!
His subsequent freediving experience in the Blue Hole in Dahab would change him forever. Swimming amongst other experienced divers, he felt energized by the atmosphere and drawn to the sport’s core values: friendship, humility, grace and respect. And yet, Matthias was surprised by the lack of safety measures being taken. He was astounded to see that some of the gear was even home-made… So he went back home with an idea in mind: something needed to be done to help the freediving community.
In 2014, after a lot of brainstorming, information collection, hard work, meetings and attempts to build partnerships, the original idea grew into a real business plan: Matthias would create a new brand, dedicated to perfecting the sport of freediving through innovative products tailored to freedivers' needs.
In 2015, with a team rallied behind his cause, he founded SUBMIND.
