Some 180 surfboards are needed to beat last year’s line of 1,674 feet at the sixth annual Survivor Beach benefit from 8 to 10 a.m. Sunday, June 10 on the beach near Scripps Pier, 8600 El Paseo Grande.

Hosted by the 19th Annual Moores UCSD Cancer Center Luau & Longboard Invitational, Survivor Beach was created in 2007 as a way to bring together the community to honor individuals in their fight against cancer, and to show support for making more people cancer survivors.
