An original British surfing company
The Circle One story is a tale of a love affair between the company’s founder, Jeff Townsley, and his lifetime passion for surfing.
Hand shaped surfboards
You can be sure when you purchase a Circle One product you are investing in years of manufacturing expertise and heritage.
Jeff Townsley founded the shaping and manufacture of Circle One surfboards and has produced arguably some of the best epoxy surfboard shapes of the last 40 years. He continues to innovate and build on his vast shaping experience to this day as all boards are still based on his designs. Whether it’s a beginner board, shortboard, mini-mal or longboard there is a board in the Circle One surfboards range to take you on the next step of your surfing journey. Choose from the full volume Razor range or the stunning Bamboo range for the next board in your surfing journey. We have also partnered with the Australian Board Company to bring you the Pulse series for beginners/intermediates, an impressive range of matt finish boards. Jeff has also used his shaping knowledge to produce a wide variety of excellent boards for other disciplines including Skimboarding, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and Bodyboarding.

Circle One has been designing and manufacturing wetsuits for over 30 years so we are experts in building wetsuits that will meet the demands of the modern surfer and water-sports enthusiast and exceed expectations even in the harshest conditions. We know your priorities are flexibility, warmth and a product durable enough to last longer than one season. That’s why all our wetsuits undergo rigorous ‘real world’ testing in British waters so you know when you buy a Circle One wetsuit you are buying a product that delivers top-class all round performance.
The pace of change in wetsuit manufacturing technology is relentless and we are passionate about selecting the best premium materials available and employ progressive manufacturing techniques to achieve the quality for which Circle One wetsuits are renowned. Whatever your sporting activity; surfing, bodyboarding, SUP boarding, kitesurfing, sailing, kayaking, swimming or just enjoying the waves, there is a Circle One wetsuit for everyone. Our kids wetsuits are perfect for playing on the beach and in the sea and provide UV protection whilst keeping them warm whilst they have fun!
All our wetsuits are manufactured using limestone neoprene, which is a more environmentally friendly material than traditional oil-based neoprene. It also lasts longer and offers greater insulation properties and flexibility than neoprene made from petrochemicals.
As with our boards and wetsuits, we have a no compromise ethos to quality and functionally of our accessories range. All accessories we supply, be it a Circle One branded or our partner brands, have been carefully selected and long-term tested by us. We will only sell kit we have 100% confidence in so our customers can have trust in our choices. There’s a lot of kit out there but the proof is in the use and we will not sell anything we haven’t rigorously tested in the real world.
Choose from our selection of accessories, including surfing accessories, surfing leashes, board bags, SUP paddles and SUP accessories, wetsuit boots, wetsuit gloves, hoods, buoyancy aids and much more..
