“We are over the moon to be honoring Wayne Lynch,” said Scott Bass Boardroom Show Executive Director. “The Boardroom prides itself on acknowledging great craftsmen, great shapers, and great surfers, but also great human beings. Wayne Lynch checks all the boxes.”

The Boardroom, beginning its 12th year, is a consumer facing showcase for the US surf manufacturing industry featuring shapers, designers, manufacturers, artists and the industry’s state-of-the-art surfboards. The show also highlights fins, wetsuits, skateboards, performance wear for both men and women, board shorts, technology, other hard-goods, the California Gold Surf Auction and much more.
