Nothing gets between Anne Marie and her board. Living in a beach shack with three roommates including her rebellious younger sister, she is up before dawn every morning to conquer the waves and count the days until the Pipe Masters surf competition. Having transplanted herself to Hawaii with no one's blessing but her own, Anne Marie finds all she needs in the adrenaline-charged surf scene ... until pro quarterback Matt Tollman comes along. Like it or not, Anne Marie starts losing her balance - and finding it - as she falls for Matt. Written by
During the scene where the girls are on the beach checking the wave conditions, the man that comes out of the water with the bloody eye was an actual surfer who got hurt. The film crew shot it and later obtained permission to use it in the film. See more »
The last time the girls pull up beside Matt while chasing him down the highway, you can see a car ahead coming towards them in the distance, and yet they have time to have a conversation before it reaches them. See more »
You really think you can surf it for real out there?
Well, Drew, I dated you, I guess I can do anything.

I won't dispute the weakness in the story and some so-so acting. In this particular case I rate this movie highly for its video and especially audio quality. For any home theater fanatic looking for top notch sound this is one of the best. When they're out in the water laying pipe, etc... its about as good a sound track as I've heard. You can almost feel the water getting in your ears. The video isn't far behind but that was easier for the filmmakers since the Hawaiian coast is so beautiful. I found the story to be passable, but there are a couple of segments that are dumb and I skip over on repeat viewings. Some of the extra features on the DVD are also good. If you have a good HT audio setup this needs to be in your collection!
