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. This year the foundation will hold its first annual stand-up paddle Surf Fest. Proceeds from this 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.
