There's surfing, but there's a lot more than that!!!
10 May 2012 | by donski1759See all my reviews

This movie had a very dramatic storyline. There IS surfing and a awesome indie rock soundtrack, but it also a story on a teen's search of her place in life after her father died saving her. Nicole (Aimee Teegarden) goes through a soul-searching trip(after finding her grandpa's 1960's van) along with a co-worker of her Grandma's (Patricia Richardson)surf shop, and 2 guys whom (at times)did not seem to go along too well. A must-watch movie if you are in great family dramas, or the environment (seaturtles clearly are apart of the movie.) And in the end of this flick,you'll feel better about life and the environment.
