The new XWave edition is shorter, measuring 230 cm and curving off with a subtle pintail for better control and grip.

The XWave line remains a fast board that enjoys side shore conditions with instant planing even in marginal winds.

My Favourite Auckland Set Up

I think we are blessed with Auckland’s range of sailing spots and conditions. We have waves, bump & jump and flat water and a good dose of wind each year. Finding the right gear is a challenge, but I reckon I have found the perfect set-up. I love my Exocet X-Waves and XO Sharks. 
The X-Wave has an amazing mix of speed, strength, hull design and fin set up. Legendary shaper Peter Thommen once said that no one raves about going slowly and this is where the X-wave scores: it’s really quick for a super controllable board and is rarely beaten by rival designs. This brings me onto hull design.

Exocet’s shaper Jean Marie Guiriec really nailed it with this shape, there is a lot going on with the hull, with various areas for different purposes. There’s rocker, a good dose of V under the mast track, a flattish section at the tail for speed and just enough tail rocker. I'm no design expert, but it is clearly a versatile shape. It turns beautifully on any size wave, and gybing is super easily in choppy conditions. The thruster fin setup helps with its awesome turning capability, but also enables great upwind tracking. The carbon glass construction is also reassuringly strong yet light and the clever heel pockets mean that the deck is not interrupted by ridges of footpads. It’s hard to put into words how good this board is, except to say that everyone I know who has one, always has a great sail and is usually the master of the conditions. 
To complement the board I use an XO shark. Exocet’s sail division have created a gem of a sail and with the X-Wave, it seems to suit Auckland’s gusty winds. It has balanced characteristics; low down power to thrash out through Owera mush, yet neutral pull when overpowered. When mega-overpowered it gets a bit heavy, but is still useable. I’ve used them at Meola on the flat, Shakespear for Bump & Jump, freestyle at Manly and in the waves at Orewa. Finally, I love the full X-ply construction and the quality finish. 
I guess what makes this set-up extra sweet is that it is also light on the wallet, which means more money for sausages.

Review by Wellington rider, Yoann:

"Board: Exocet X-wave 91

Sail: X0-Sail Shark 4.5

Condition: 25 knots gusty, logo high cross-off wind, Logo high to mast high clean wavesSpot Lyall Bay, 17/04/2015

I have had this board for a while now, but did not have the conditions to test it in waves, as I usually use smaller board in Wellington… I have used it as a bump’n jump board, in lighter wind, and was already very happy with it. Fast to plane and easy to jibe…

But for today’s gusty conditions this seemed like the perfect day to test the board. This board gets planes very easily, and I had no issue at all getting out. Very well balanced under your feet and quite floaty for 91 liters (I weight 90 kg)… It jumps well, and the pads are very comfortable when landing a bit hard…

On the surfing side, it is very, very fast, and very easy to drive on the wave… I think it would be looser with a smaller fin, (I think 20 or smaller should be enough in thruster configuration), but I loved it that way already. It turns quite tightly for such a big board and recover its speed very easily… I will definitely use it more that I used to on those days where the wind is a bit less steady than usual, and you need a bit extra volume to get going.


Overall, a very good wave board, and I am very happy with it!!!"
