Plot Synopsis

Fatherless teenager Jake is perfectly happy living in Chicago, until his mother decides to uproot them to a small surfing town where her estranged father, Jake's grandfather, lives. The transition isn't easy for anyone and it seems everywhere he goes, Jake manages to make enemies, including the town bully, who doesn't like the new stranger or his interest in the town's young surfing prodigy, Kayla. Stuck in the beach town with no friends and no knowledge of surfing, he has nowhere to turn until Cody, the local surf shop owner, reveals that Jake's grandfather, Lou, is a surf legend. Tired of feeling like an outcast, he asks Lou to teach him about surfing. He soon learns to face his fears, push through inhibitions and realizes that winning the respect of his new peers -- and Kayla's heart -- might mean facing the biggest challenge of his life.
