Dana is 18, gorgeous and a killer surfer with a shelf full of trophies to prove it. When her father pressures her to buckle down and go to college, Dana flees her Beverly Hills home for the beaches of South Africa, the site of some of the world's most awesome surf and her late mother's home country.

Obviously I haven't watched the original 2002 Blue Crush but I don't wanna compare anyway because then this one would be under the shadow as I am seeing in these reviews. I enjoyed the movie not only because Pushy's Zulu name is Nokuthula(which she couldn't pronounce very well by the way) but also because as the first surfing movie I've seen, it was a great experience. I am tired of all those cheer leading movies and football and all other common sports. It was nice to see something different for a change.
I must say I liked the combination of race(specifically imitating African black as opposed to any black race). The flexibility of Dana's character kept the storyline nice because I expected her to rent a hotel or something but she settled nicely in those shacks getting along with those poor pple. It was interesting for me. Thanx.
