Edit
Trivia Most of the buildings in the little beach town of Avila Beach, as seen in the movie, no longer exist. In the late 1990s, due to leakage from the Union 76 petroleum tanks outside of town, (seen at the beginning of the movie), the ground under the entire beachfront area was contaminated. To clean it up, they had to tear down and rebuild the entire beachfront strip. See more »
