XCEL


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.


Developing wetsuits in Hawaii came naturally to D’Ascoli, having grown up surfing New Jersey’s chilly Atlantic coasts. While temperate Hawaii waters rarely call for any more than 2mm neoprene, Sunset Beach and other North Shore breaks are incredibly challenging and demand world-class products for maximum performance.


Drawing upon his enthusiasm and experience helping establish Victory Wetsuits (Japan) as an international brand, D’Ascoli quickly laid the foundations of a core wetsuit company that would revolutionize the industry and push the cutting edge of material and design development.


After penetrating the surfing market, Xcel rode its rapid growth into expanding its offerings and found wider audiences across the ocean. Today, surf, dive, UV protection, paddle, and wake combine to form the core of Xcel’s brand appeal. In 1990, D’Ascoli moved Xcel from Sunset Beach into its present headquarters in Haleiwa. Soon after, to better service Xcel retailers on the mainland, the brand opened a warehouse in California. This West Coast location facilitated Xcel’s entry into the recreational diving market. Using successful features and vast product knowledge of its successful surf and military wetsuits, Xcel quickly raised the bar for dive wetsuit design.See less

XCEL 3/2mm Thermolite Wetsuit Reviews

XCEL 3/2mm Thermolite Wetsuit Reviews

Reviewer: Phillip Ball on 3/29/2014

Awesome value - I wasnt sure if a 3mil was going to be warm enough, or the quality of a suit at this price. Wow was I surprised, water was 65 degrees and never felt a chill and what a great fit. The size was true to the chart unlike a lot of brands I have used. Overall I would recommend this and will replace my wife and daughters suits with these.

XCEL 8/7/6/5mm Polar Hydroflex Wetsuit with Attached Hood Reviews

Reviewer: Sam J. on 11/12/2013

Warm and toasty - I was very comfortable and in fact a touch warm in Southern CA this winter. Living in Northern CA Im sure I will be happy to have this thicker suit. This suit stretches a bunch and is conmfortable for the most part. Being a front zip there is a little bunching in the shoulder areas but not an excessive amount.

XCEL 1.5mm Reefwalker Low Top Dive Boots for 2014 Review - $27.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - They fit well, are light weight, and work great in my fins. The soles are very thin however so care should be taken when walking over rocks.

Very versatile boots - Very pleased with our choice to get the low top boots for our son. He wears them for all water related activities including diving, surfing, river, and sand sports. Only wish that they made them in bigger sizes for my other two boys.
