oe Roper tops the field again at the 17th Annual Moores UCSD Cancer Center Luau & Longboard Invitational. Pacific Beach’s Joe Roper was on the winning team seventeen year’s ago and by picking off the long lefts to south at La Jolla Shores last month, whilst battling former Luau champ Jock Sutherland he lead his Wells Fargo Bank team to victory to once again to be on the winning team. It was a picture perfect Southern California day, with glassy 2-4’ peaks, which gave the legends ample opportunity to show their stuff! Surf legends were out in full force, Rich Chew, Mike Eaton, Mike Hynson, David Nuuhiwa, John Peck, Jericho Poppler, L.J Richards, Mike Tabeling, PT, Steve Walden, Wingnut and a whole lot more. The annual get together raised in excess of a quarter million dollars on the day for cancer research and took the tally since the luau’s inception to have raised over five million dollars.
