Ed D’Ascoli founded Xcel in 1982, working from the bedroom of his Sunset Beach house. D’Ascoli found no shortage of inspiration from the world-class performances on display at his doorstep; and the opportunity to create and to connect high-performance products with the athletes who demanded them was irresistible. Xcel’s passionate focus on product development would become the defining characteristic of the brand.
Xcel’s reputation for exceptional product quality is a clear result of an unwavering dedication to research, development, and design innovation. With tropical to cold-water products for men, women, and kids, the brand stresses performance: maximum stretch and durability, sealed-seam construction, and a fit that feels custom-made every time.
In 2007 and 2008, Xcel was awarded consecutive “Wetsuit of the Year” titles from the Surf Industry Manufacturer’s Association (SIMA), prestigious recognitions from industry peers.
