Trivia

The Tab Hunter character "Steamer Lane" was named for the world-class surfing spot in Santa Cruz, Calif. Surfing pioneer Jack O'Neill tested and improved his invention, the neoprene wetsuit, at Steamer Lane in the '50s. The O'Neill Coldwater Classic competition has attracted the world's top surfers to The Lane annually since 1987, with a $425,000 prize purse in 2012. See more »

Better than average surfer melodrama
30 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Good time parties and excellent surfing footage, plus a better than average script (involving most of the usual beach melodrama, except without the jealousy of AIP's beachers). The leads are all good looking, reasonably mature dialogue and a well-shared spread of characterization making them seem more mature and real than most beach "kids". Of course, many modern day fans of beach movies are looking only for derisive laughs, so they should probably look elsewhere -- because this is a more heartfelt, less light film.

Could have shown the way for some new stars -- but this hollywood brat club got mostly passed over.
