Jericho Poppler Board Member

Jericho Poppler, Board Membergrew up on the beach body surfing, playing volleyball, and studied in the creative arts, theatre and dance. Poppler has devoted her life to the development and preservation of the sport of surfing.  She was the US Champ in ’70, the US Tandem Champ in ’73 (with Hal Sachs), the First World Pro Tour leader riding big waves in ’76, the first PLA Longboard champ in ’92, and the first US SUP racing champ in ’07. In ’74, Jericho envisioned the “WISA” (The Women’s International Surfing Association) with former US Champ Mary Setterholm and then in ’75 produced and directed the first All Women’s International Pro along with California Surf Champ Terri Eselun.  After competing the tour around the world with her California Golden Girls surf team, Jeri established the “WPS” (Women Pro Surfers) in ’78 with her best friend Rell Sunn of Hawaii—which was a coalition to enhance and protect the rights of Pro Athletes. Jericho was also a charter member of Surfrider. Jericho still surfs and SUPs around the world and resides in Long Beach (which she refers to as “Long Port) but designates Surf City USA - Huntington Beach - as her home break for the past five decades.  She is married to Dr. Greg Bartlow and together they have five mountain and sea kids.
