  • the cast
  • surfers vs. skateboarders
  • Turtle
  • soul surfing
  • and much, much more!


Rick Kane is an 18 year old surfer from Arizona whose ultimate dream is to ride the waves of Hawaii’s legendary North Shore. Champion of his neighborhood wave-pool, Rick is ready for a real ocean… but is he ready for Oahu’s North Shore, where nature’s most powerful waves challenge the world’s most fearless wave warriors?

Once there, Rick collides head on with the leader of the Hawaiian Brotherhood, Vince (played by Gerry Lopez)… falls in love with Vince’s beautiful cousin Kiani (Nia Peeples)… and befriends the beach-wise Turtle (John Philbin). North Shore sets the stage for the drama of a young man learning the lessons of love, friendship, and rivalry… the hard way!
