Revealing mistakes: As the film opens, the three female leads are driving on a highway in a 1964 Dodge convertible, towing a travel trailer, and there are no other vehicles in front of or behind them. In the next shot, taken from the next lane and in front of the Dodge, there is an early 1960s Studebaker Hawk two-door following behind them. In the following shot, taken from behind the Dodge, the Studebaker has disappeared and there are no other cars following them.See more »

What respectable surfer doesn't like a Surfing Movie????, 28 July 2014
Author: michaelzstuff from California

C'mon admit it, how could you not like a surfing movie where the sharks don't eat anyone or the waves don't sink your boat or drown the captain. I mean, give 'em a break. A surfing movie has surfing hotties and kissing and humping so what more do you want??? And especially since it has so many cool bands such as the Routers playing "Crack Up" and some great actors of the 60's.

Okay, all right, it didn't cost twenty million to produce (only about $30,000) and look at the quality photography. But you try to make a movie for $30 thousand and see what you come up with. And that Michael Gordon was one handsome musician and the song wasn't that bad. So please, before you hang them by the testies simply because it wasn't perfect, who is? If you can admit you're not perfect, then give them a break and "like' this movie so more of these luscious surf movies can be made on micro-budget.
