Our 3rd Annual Surf Fest was the best yet, and hope to top it this year with your help!!  We would like to thank all the contestants and sponsors that contributed to making it such a memorable event. 

 This year we will be holding our 4th Annual John “Pops” Ah Choy Surf Fest on September 14-15, 2013.  Along with our usual divisions, we will be adding new events–a high school team relay race and a high school division. So we want all of you high school surf teams to enter!  Check below for divisions and registration forms.  Come down and join us for two fun-filled days of surfing and music.  

In addition to the music and surf, we also celebrate the beach boys by honoring those who dedicate their lives to spreading the spirit of aloha through surf.  This year’s ceremony will be held on Saturday, September 14th.  Ceremony will begin at 7:00am.

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.  If you would like to make a donation to the John “Pops” Ah Choy Foundation, you may mail checks or money orders payable to the John “Pops” Ah Choy Foundation to the following address:
