Before entering art school next autumn, Rick sets out to spend the summer surfing at Hawaii. He knows nothing about the local habits, what causes him some starting problems, but by chance he gets a room in the house of guru Chandler. He teaches him the difference between 'soul surfers' and those who surf for fame and money. Also he manages to get the attention of a beautiful young native. (Features special appearances by real-life champions like Shaun Tompson, Derek Ho and others in many surfing scenes) Written by
