Creating Surf Since '69!
Circle One are the founders of high quality surfing gear!
Circle One was founded in Exeter, Devon by legendary shaper, Jeff Townsley, back in the early days of 1969.
As a young guy in the early 60’s, fortunate enough to live the surf dream , Jeff travelled with his fellow surf buddies through Southern France, Spain, Portugal, Canaries, Morocco and beyond in the essential beaten up VW campervan. Those journeys like nothing else fired his passion for riding waves and surfing to the max.
So, back in the UK and with feet on the ground, it is a classic story of humble corporate beginnings – making boards for himself and his friends taking inspiration from US Surf magazines. All the while Jeff was testing new designs, materials and production techniques, thinking how he could do things better, challenging the norm.
Over 40 years on and the Circle One evolution continues. Today the brand is synonymous with technological innovation and craftsmanship, the same starting points of Jeff’s first exploits.
The history continues..
Circle One founder, Jeff Townsley, has been shaping surfboards and putting together wetsuits for over 40 years. Highly regarded by those in the surfing industry, Jeff continues to drive all his passion and expertise into Circle One products to this day. All Circle One products are rigorously tested and then re-tested in the real world to deliver you a range of products that excel in their purpose and leave you getting on with the business of surfing.
Quality is at the heart of Circle One and has been since the company was founded by Jeff Townsley in 1969.
