Storyline

From surfing innovations to gritty localism, follow the rise and fall of The Westsiders surf gang through the eyes of three best friends from the original 'Surf City': Santa Cruz, California. Best friends Daryl 'Flea' Virostko, Shawn 'Barney' Barron, and Jason 'Ratboy' Collins bonded by common tragedy and their love of surfing. They live through shattered homes, drug addiction, other psychological issues and hard-core localism to achieve their dream of becoming professional surfers before the age of 24. To surf the notorious Steamer Lane, they had to join 'The Westsiders' Surf Gang and go face to face with Vince Collier, aka 'The Godfather of The Westside'. Vince, a massive brute force, ran Steamer Lane with his own version of street justice. This film explores The Westsiders as the latest chapter in the fascinating surfer history of Santa Cruz, California. Written by Newport Beach Film Festival
