Mark Laboccetta, Founder
Mark Laboccetta started freediving and spearfishing in 1987 with his father Eddie in Sardinia where he was from. He started diving with a small Technisub 40cm pneumatic speargun for mullet along the Sardinian seashore with Eddie. Underwater hunting became his passion. The IUSA has awarded Mark 11 world spearfishing records to date. By 1997 Mark and his father brokered a National Distribution contract for North America by Omersub of Italy. Mark’s family business was the steward and custodian of these (Omersub and Sporasub) until the company was acquired by a public Corporation in 2013. After growing Technosport into a multi-million dollar revenue business Mark decided, he didn’t want to be an “operations function” for the man. Spearfishing is a small grass roots industry with family owned artisans that produce the best products. These qualities made this fun in the first place. It was only natural to reinvent the mission of high-end small companies focused on artisanship rather than volume like you see in this catalog.
The Maverick America spearfishing line represents a benchmark, in terms of quality and value from small productions, for spearfishing enthusiasts around the world. We think you’ll agree and we look forward to listening to our customers and continuing our mission of providing the best quality products in the industry to satisfy our firstname.lastname@example.org
