Pierre Agnes, 54, had ventured out at around 7.30am (2.30pm Singapore) on a routine fishing trip before contacting the local harbour master to say he was delaying his return because of fog, a source close to the rescue team told AFP.

A massive search was underway off the coast of France Tuesday for Pierre Agnes, the CEO of American retail sportswear company Quicksilver, after his powerboat washed up on a beach during rough weather conditions.

Boats and helicopters are involved in the search being led by the French coastguard.

According to Shop-Eat-Surf, Agnes "is known for his absolute devotion to the brand, to the company, and to the surf industry overall, and for building a very profitable business in Europe".

On Wednesday, 11-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater posted a photo to his Instagram page of Mr Agnes, saying he "loves this man".

Agnes, who joined the company almost 30 years ago, was long based at Quiksilver's European headquarters in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, just south of Biarritz. Later in the morning his boat was recovered on the beach near his hometown and Pierre has not been heard from since.
