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.

Not that bad, not the best bet, I'd still want to watch it again
This movie was fun for me. I saw adds for this on TV and the fact that is was straight to DVD made me doubt it's potential, but being a fan of the original I figured I give it a chance, so when I saw this on Netflix I thought it'd be something to watch to pass the time. I was impressed by it, granted it definitely wasn't the greatest acting and lines were cheesy here and there but I did enjoy it.
It was an entirely different story from the first and I enjoyed that fact, they weren't trying to continue off a story that people forgot about a decade ago. The story is about a California girl trying to find her own and the only way she knows how is to retrace her mother's surfing footsteps in South Africa, with only a picture album to go on she flies SA and starts her journey, but it's not as simple as she thought it be and immediately doubts herself and her journey. However she manages to make new friends that help her with her goal to walk in her mother's footsteps.
I find movies like this really entertaining, they know they won't be making the Oscar's or win awards but they do the best they can. It's a very chill and relaxing film, paying homage to most surf films which is basically a "chill or be chill" vibe which in it's own right is a very attractive scenario, at least for me.
I give this film 8 because the acting isn't the best and it get's cheesy in some parts but overall this is a great film it's worth a watch if you like surfer flicks and it's something relaxing enough to watch on a lazy day. Like I said in the title, not the best but I'm still going to watch it again.
