We need more movies like this
30 December 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best surfing movie I have ever seen. It has a great story and a perfect cast. Jeremy Sumpter and Eric Christian Olsen work GREAT together as brothers.

Jeremy Sumpter is a very gifted actor. He is unbelievably talented. This movie is just good,clean entertainment,and we could definately use more movies like this nowadays. > Also,the surfing rocks! Mark Harmon has been a favorite of mine for a couple of years now. I'm not sure I agree with his moustache though. It would've looked better on him if it was shorter on the sides. I love the opening sequence,with Skeet (Jeremy Sumpter) riding his skim board near the shore. Skim boarding is fun to do, and fun to watch!

I'm giving it an 11 out of 10! I SERIOUSLY recommend this to any surfing fans,surf movie fans, and anyone who likes great entertainment and hot beaches!
