Bing Surfboards is proud to donate a 9’7″ Bing Pipeliner to the Luau and Legends of Surfing Invitational annual event, happening Sunday, August 17, 2014. Proceeds from the 21st Annual Luau and Legends of Surfing Invitational will support research, clinical trials and patient care at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. Established in 1978, Moores Cancer Center is one of just 41 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the United States, and the only one in the San Diego region.
Sunday, August 17, 2014 at the Scripps Pier, La Jolla
7:00 am – 11:30am
The day begins at the beach below Scripps Pier with a surfing tournament where the emphasis is on participation and support for the cause rather than an individual’s surfing ability. Each of the sponsored teams, including an assigned surfing legend, vie for traditional trophies.
Registration and Silent Auction Opens
11:30 am – 3:00 pm
The Luau festivities commence under tents where more than 500 attendees enjoy live music while dining at a tropical buffet. Guests may opt to participate in opportunity drawings; the silent auction; or test their bidding skills against each other as “one-of-a-kind” pieces of surf-inspired artwork, exceptional surfboards, and vacation packages are put up for live auction. Always a crowd favorite!
VIP Party, Saturday, August 16, 2014
The VIP Party will take place at a private donor’s home the evening before the surf invitational. At this exclusive event, guests will have an opportunity to mingle with surf legends, experience special live entertainment and dine on extraordinary tropical treats. This is a ticketed only event; tickets must be purchased in advance.
If you’d like to support and attend the event visit luauandlegendsofsurfing.org to get more information.

An Interview with Christian Marcher of Progressive Surf Academy
You’d be hard pressed to find someone more stoked on surfing than our friend and local ripper Christian Marcher. Big boards, small boards, soft tops, surf mats, hand planes, you name it and this guy rides them all at a very elite level. The best part about Christian is that he is always the nicest guy in the water and he pushes the boundaries of what you think is possible on a surfboard every time he paddles out.
With over 30 years of surfing experience, Christian has built Progressive Surf Academy into one of the most well-respected surf schools anywhere on the West Coast. He and his team use a very unique approach that dives deep into ocean safety, technique, and ethics in the lineup that you don’t see anywhere else. Christian delivers a premium surf experience for all ages and has been a part of the Bing family for a few years, so we sat down to chat and learn a bit more about the man and his love for the ocean.
