Ed D'Ascolі founded the Xcel brand in 1982, inspired by the performances of world-class surfers near his home at Sunset Beach. He decided to create products for surfers with high demands. Xcel's focus and orientation are directed towards developing innovative products, which has become a defining characteristic of the brand.
Xcel quickly became a popular manufacturer of wetsuits for surfing. Today, Xcel has fans in kiteboarding, wakeboarding, diving, spearfishing, paddling, SUP, and also produces UV protection apparel. Utilizing successful developments and extensive knowledge, Xcel manufactures wetsuits for the U.S. Navy SEALs special forces.
Xcel's reputation is built on the exceptional quality of its products, which is a clear result of unwavering dedication to research and development. The production of wetsuits utilizes technologies incorporating mineral-infused fibers (TDC) that actively interact with your body. Xcel is all about maximum functionality, elasticity, and comfort, all wrapped in an exquisite noble design!
