Circle One by Jeff Townsley

Here's a very clean, or very well restored Circle One from the Gul collection. Shaped by Jeff Townsley, who started the company in 1969 in Exeter and it still goes strong today. Circle One were one of Devon's top producers by the early-mid 70s when this board was shaped, making boards, wetsuits and surfwear. Jeff traveled abroad a lot surfing and it shows in the tropical logo.
This is the last board of the lot that Alex photographed, so thanks to him and Gul for sharing them with us. Condition of the Gul boards is pretty amazing really, well restored by Fluid Juice and Beach Beat.

Above and below, Jeff early 70s
