The camera has long had a love affair with surfing's death-defying acrobatics, but rarely has the lifestyle survived the demands of gripping drama on dry land. The narrative centers on 13-year-old Bruce (Samson Coulter), whom his friends know as "Pikelet," and his daredevil best mate, "Loonie" (Ben Spence). When the boys first catch a glimpse of surfers riding monster waves, they become instantly hooked. Soon the teens' enthusiasm is noted by a crusty, enigmatic "surfie" named Sando (Simon Baker) who takes the kids under his wing. But tensions mount as Loonie and Sando take increasingly risky chances on the deadly waves, leaving Pikelet behind, where he learns other life lessons with Sando's unhappy girlfriend, Eva (Elizabeth Debicki).
