High school senior Luke Harris dreams of just one thing—pro surfing. He and best friend Casey have two goals: surf and party! But Luke's mom, and especially dad, has other ideas: pick a college and grow up! When Luke learns that a spot is opening up on the local surf team, he sees his big chance to prove to his parents that he can make it as a surfer and avoid being shipped off to school. Only two things stand in Luke's way: his dad, who insists he give up his surfing dreams and get an education, and Matt, the new surfer in town, who has his own eyes set on the surf team opening. When a devastating tragedy strikes, Luke is forced to take a hard look at his life.
