Just because you’re born in a desert doesn’t mean you can’t make it as a surfer in Hawaii as this film about Arziona boy done good, Rick Kane shows. It’s based on the real life story of Barney Partyka – a surfer from Conneticut.

Kane stands out as a tourist upon arrival but slowly earns their respect as he learns the soul surfer way of life. The film climaxes with surf to the death against the film’s villain, played by Laird Hamilton.

Best Line: ‘Brookhart, you bastard!!’
