Exocet is a devoted sailboard manufacturer that took its initial steps in the early 90s under the guidance of Patrice Belbeoch, a former PWA World Champion. During the early years, the boards were custom shaped, catering exclusively to World Cup racers and specific clientele. Collaborating with several legendary shapers, the team's prowess quickly gained international recognition. In 1993, Jean-Marie Guiriec, a seasoned composite technician with extensive experience from his involvement in French America's Cup syndicate Defi France, joined the company as a shaper.

The resounding success and favorable market reception of numerous acclaimed models in the 90s prompted Patrice and Jean-Marie to establish their own line of production boards in 2000. Every year, a series of innovative and successful shapes were introduced, while the R&D and marketing facilities were established in Thailand in 2004.

In 2009, leveraging his extensive experience since 1986, Patrice embarked on a new venture by launching his own brand of sails, XO Sails. This brand crafted a comprehensive range of products catering to various skill levels, from beginners to racing enthusiasts.

Today, Exocet has emerged as a trailblazing and rapidly expanding brand within the industry. It offers a diverse selection of windsurfing boards, sails, and stand-up paddling equipment, encompassing entry-level concepts to cutting-edge racing machines. With a global presence in over 50 countries, Exocet remains committed to delivering advanced and dependable products across all proficiency levels.
