We thought we spotted John wearing some new suits in Tiree and we now hear he has announced joining the Xcel team. Having got 5th place in Sylt followed by a win in Tiree its clear that the suits aren\'t holding him back at all.

"My first chance to try the suits was in Sylt and whilst most of the guys were in their 5/3 winter suits I was boiling wearing my 2/2 Infiniti. The suits are really comfortable too and give you a lot of freedom."

Xcel have a huge following in the surfing world and it looks like the windsurfing world will follow quickly. Check out the range at www.Xcelwetsuits.com.
