Many of us can relate to a guy like Scotty Henthorn. He grew up on the coast and has been surfing for over 30 years. Unpretentious and unassuming, his passion is the ocean. Throughout his career, Scotty's life has revolved around the sea, working in a number of professional maritime industries.
Scotty is the driving force behind the Bombala Board Room. When you love something it is only natural to want to share it with as many people as possible. He heads up the manufacturing, distribution and quality control side of things.
