Summary

A coming-of-age tale combining the gorgeous Australian surfing beaches with the raw energy, music and rebellion of teen culture. 17-year-old Jesse and his brothers live in the small town of Newcastle. Rising surf star Jesse (Aussie TV heart-throb Lachlan Buchanan) spends time chasing waves and girls and battling with his resentful older brother, Victor (Reshad Stik). His other brother Fergus (Twilight: Eclipse star Xavier Samuel), meantime, has a major crush on Jesse’s pal Andy (Kirk Jenkins). Jesse’s got the raw talent to surf his way into the international circuit, but can he overcome his equally natural tendency to sabotage himself? On a getaway weekend with Fergus and his mates, Jesse learns what is really important in life.
