Ed D'Ascoli, a New Jersey native displaced in Hawaii, founded Xcel wetsuits and accessories in 1982 and quickly took the surfing world by storm. Internationally recognised for cutting-edge surf gear technology, their products are designed to withstand the harshest of waters around with a focus on durable materials. Branching out into UV protection and wetsuits (they've even dabbled in military-grade wetsuits - pretty impressive, right?), we're sure you'll find plenty of comfort and versatility in this awesome brand. A firm favourite of the Surfdome team and with good reason.
