A large crowd braved the morning gray Sunday to watch the friendly surfing competition that is part of the annual Luau & Longboard Invitational. Combined with the afternoon’s luau and auctions, the event raised another $415,000 for UCSD’s Moores Cancer Center. Dr. Dennis Carson of the center received the Rell Sun for his contributions to cancer research.
