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

Trivia

In addition to featuring some of the best professional surfers , this film also stars a few of the most notorious North Shore rough necks. Although Kala Alexander, Kai Garcia, and Makua Rothman all excel at surfing themselves, they are best known as enforcers of wave riding etiquette at Sunset, Pipe and other North Shore Beaches. These men are the quintessence of Hawaiian surf culture. When you see them on the screen, they are not merely actors, they are the real deal. See more »

Hi marks for the audio presentation
12 July 2004 | by LBytesSee all my reviews

I won't dispute the weakness in the story and some so-so acting. In this particular case I rate this movie highly for its video and especially audio quality. For any home theater fanatic looking for top notch sound this is one of the best. When they're out in the water laying pipe, etc... its about as good a sound track as I've heard. You can almost feel the water getting in your ears. The video isn't far behind but that was easier for the filmmakers since the Hawaiian coast is so beautiful. I found the story to be passable, but there are a couple of segments that are dumb and I skip over on repeat viewings. Some of the extra features on the DVD are also good. If you have a good HT audio setup this needs to be in your collection!
