Our history

Typhoon was founded in 1947 by Oscar Gugen.

After the second world war Oscar came to England and started up E.T Skinner and also founded a club for divers which became the British Sub Aqua Club, which subsequently grew to become the largest diving club in the world.

E.T Skinner was the first company in the UK to make wetsuits and soon became the market leaders in diving and sailing equipment. In the 1970’s the name was changed to Typhoon and a factory was built in Redcar where the company still operates today.

In 1976, Typhoon developed the first lightweight drysuit. In 1992 Typhoon designed a revolutionary new suit using Clotex a soft polyester trilaminate fabric alongside other breathable materials, which is now standard for most surface drysuits.
