The name Scarfini belongs to two brothers; Jonathan and Denis. Originally from Italy they have enjoyed extreme outdoor activities from a young age, such as Skateboarding, Snowboarding, Rock climbing and at around the age of 18; and Surfing.
in 2002 Jonathan’s creative side was inspired to shape his own boards as well as making his own fins in his backyard garage. As it turns out, his fins were much better than his boards. It wasn’t too long till his buddies and others in the water were riding the fins and soon after, local shapers demanding them for their local and export orders. Jonathan, realizing he had stumbled a market for fins, he summoned his brother Denis to Durban. The two brothers then embarked, in 2003, upon a journey that has taken them to global distribution of Scarfini fins. Scarfini fins have grown from strength to strength, handmade in South Africa and driven by surfing passion.
