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.
