Exocet is a devoted sailboard manufacturer, initiated in the early 90’s by Patrice Belbeoch a former PWA World Champion. For several years, the boards were custom shaped and only dedicated World Cup racers and specific customers, and with the cooperation of several legendary shapers, the team’s recognition quickly became known world wide. Jean-Marie Guiriec, a composite technician with vast experiences from his development work with the French America’s Cup syndicate Defi France joined the company in 1993 as a shaper.
World renowned sail designer, Barry Spanier, teamed up with the veteran racer and former PBA World champion, Phil McGain, in 1999, to use their experience in leading edge windsurfing technology and Research and Development to provide the tools to win the Overall World Cup title in 2000. That team went on to win five more titles since 2000, and became one of the premier development groups of today. Barry Spanier and The Team at MauiSails have led developments in all aspects of the sport since 1978, and continue to lead the way today.
Streamlined Windsurfing was established in 1982 by David Dominy to design and produce high performance windsurfing components. Back then Dave's first design was the first, the original, 'Tendon' universal joint. This design has become the industry standard throughout the world and is arguably the most imitated design in all of windsurfing.
The main goal of X.O sails is to for offer a state of the art product with the finest quality and finish at all levels. We have an “eye” for it. All sail lines feature the “Strip Draft Locker” to control and assist the foil in all conditions. The Strip Locker is truly a revolution as it adds an amazing stability always related to high performance because the sailor can concentrate on his position rather than fighting the rig to get all the potential out of it. Developed by Patrice Belbeoch, all the designs will benefit from his racing experience as well as his know how from R&D and design works with several major brands in the past.
