This movie is about a lot of things; how surfing became a big sport; how all sports move from being a passion to a business as they gain wider acceptance; about the process of success, failure, and resilience.
But most importantly, in a time in which so few young men have healthy bonds with other young men, this is a movie about how the joy of surfing brought together boys that grew into men. There’s a lot of meaningless chat about sports teams being like families, but these guys really are like a family, in the best way.
SummaryFollowing the intense trials, painful sacrifices and incredible achievements of the influential surfing group who started out as teenagers from Hawaii in a small house in O’ahu.
