Event Overview:
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.

11:00 am
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.

Interview with Mario Ordoñez-Calderón of 'Un Mar De Colores'

What would you do if you were gifted an almost pristine 1970s Bing single fin? Would you keep it for yourself? Most probably would. Encinitas local Mario Ordoñez-Calderón saw it as an opportunity to give back to his community. Mario approached Bing Surfboards about raffling off the gorgeous 7’4” single fin to raise money for his local non-profit, Un Mar De Colores, and we gladly accepted. We’ll be holding 14 day raffle for this original Bing surfboard with a live drawing for the winner on July 17th. All proceeds will go to Un Mar De Colores.

Rest In Peace Greg, you’ll be missed. - Bing Copeland
