We have been testing the Bamboo boards from Circle One over the past few months and have really got to fall in love with them.

£399 for the board fins and pads!
What IKSURF had to say:

Circle One 5'8" Kite Board Independent Review by

Circle One have been a major player in the surf industry since 1969 and they have a long pedigree. It is very exciting therefore to see a true surf brand recognise kiting as a market worthy of their presence. For years now kiters have been trying to get recognition from the huge surf industry and bit-by-bit it seems we are getting there. Circle One have developed 4 boards for this season, a 6’6” Quad Fin Square Tail, a 6’3” Swallow Tail, a 6’ Diamond Tail and finally the 5’8” Round Tail that we have here. In that range there should be something for everyone, if you are new to the kite SURFboard market then a good rule of thumb is to choose a board 2 inches shorter than yourself. This will allow you to have enough size and buoyancy to be able to gybe it, but also mean the board will be big enough to be able to surf the wave, rather than just kite along it.

Jeff Townsley who founded the company way back when has shaped the 5’8” and he is one of the more experienced shapers out there. The board is quite narrow at 17 and three quarters but there is a good amount of volume under the feet just where you need it. It utilises a lightweight construction with vinyl reinforcing and although as with all surfboards it will need looking after it certainly withstands the knocks of day-to-day riding. The fin set up is the classic thruster lay out and high quality honeycomb fins come as standard. The great thing is that although the fins aren’t FCS the fin boxes will take FCS fins, so should you find yourself hitting the reef in a far-flung location it shouldn’t prove too difficult to get a replacement! The overall finish and look of the board is excellent, the graphics are simple and the board looks like a surfboard should, not like some 9 year old has been let loose with a set of crayons

Epic Kites - Dealer Week USA

I have just returned from an Epic Dealer Trip to Cape Hattaras in North Carolina USA.

Screamers & Renegade

It gave me the chance to try each kite back to back in a huge range of conditions, ideal testing grounds!

We were provided with amazing accomodation right on the beach in Nags head and each day we'd check the conditions then decide which beach to head too....flat water slicks on the Sound side or head high surf on the Atlantic side.
Dimitri is, well he's Dimitri!!
Crazy, on and off the water he's simply 100mph. This made for an action packed week with non stop kiting every day.
His enthusiasm is amazing and very very infectious, it was amazing to see and witness so many people who tried the kites there. There were so many genuine stoked people loving the kites and boards.

There are basically three kites in the range:

Renegade: Do-all kite, beginner, freeride, wave

Screamer: Old school boosting machine (the highest I have jumped)

Judge: New School Freestyle C Kite
and then there is also the Infinity Light wind kite, a true light wind kite that you can still have fun on inc jumps etc
