Storyline

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 Schleppy

"blue crush" was a rush!! surfing scenes were gorgeous, adrenalized, spectacular. this was brilliant anthropology. you got a great look at two worlds--girl surfers and hotel maids. that's a lot more than most sports films give. the plot was a sports movie plot. but the absolute best thing about THIS sports movie was it starred girls!!! and they slammed!!
