Surf’s up listeners! This episode I speak to Ventana Surfboard Company co-founder, Microsoft employee, photographer and entrepreneur David Dennis about the importance of being an eco-friendly company, philanthropy, and his TedX talk about creating a life of serving others, by capitalizing on your passions. We discuss a range of marketing strategies and partnerships that fuel the business of artisanal surfboards, entrepreneurship as an ideology and David graciously shares his personal experience with a mental health condition.
