The John "Pops" Ah Choy Foundation was created on June 3, 2010 to honor one of the great men who started the sport of stand-up paddle surfing in hopes to continue his legacy for the future generations of surfers in Hawaii and throughout the world. Proceeds from our event will aid local charities and provide scholarships for students. This year we have chosen the Alzheimer Association of Hawaii as our charity. Scholarships will be created and available for student athletes in water sports who wish to continue their education after high school.
The dates are set:
June 24th & 25th, 2017!!
This year's contest is right around the corner! We will be holding our 7th Annual John "Pops" Ah Choy Surf Fest on June 24-25, 2017. We have added new divisions, including a TANDEM PET DIVISION and a 4 EVENT LEROY AH CHOY WATERMAN COMPETITION. Come down and join us for a fun-filled weekend of surfing and music.
Proceeds from the contest will be donated to the Aloha Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association to aid in the fight against this widespread disease as well as the Oahu SPCA.
