What a thoroughly lame flick. Almost insulting how implausible and poorly directed the scenes are, like all surfers looking out on a beautifully calm shore only to drop down a trail to huge waves. Then the boy who almost drowns picks up a long board the next day and gets up on first try. Disney couldn't have made a worse movie with a more predictable plot and cookie-cutter characters. Ick.

The plot was excellent, and really enjoyed the cinematography!! Must see on big screen.

I was lucky enough to see this movie early, and I loved it. It's a great surfing movie about pushing through hard times and a great father-son movie. I would highly recommend it to everybody.

Based on a real story with extra added elements it is able to mantain the story line combining the thrills of big wave surfing and the personal dramas of the protagonists. The photography and stunts were excellent, able to bring the real mavericks to the screen. Butler does a fantastic job impersonating the Frosty character and the main character was able to bring the real story to life.
