Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A wicked satire, an exotic mystery, and a spiritual odyssey wrapped up in one off the wall film you don’t have to be a surfer to enjoy.

Kat (Marguerite Moreau), a brand new journalism grad, has landed her first big job. It’s in Hawaii and she couldn’t be more excited to get away from her father (David Rasche) and his expectations. All it requires is an upbeat personality, good instincts and a lot of perseverance.

But Kat is finding the work harder than she ever imagined. For one thing, her prey—an elusive big wave surfer named “The Monk”—doesn’t intend to be found, and the friendly locals are being somewhat less than helpful. Her uninvited boyfriend (Mackenzie Astin) is driving her crazy, her ex-surfer guide (Mark Fite) has been on the losing end of too many waves, the geek she’s reporting to (Adam Scott) is falling in love with her, and she’s wanted by the FBI. What’s a girl to do?!

Kat realizes too late that finding “The Monk” will cost her more than she could ever afford. But can she foresee that she’ll wind up finding herself?”

…surfer farce that chafes like sand in a wetsuit… even the sudden cutaways to spectacular surf footage can’t save this wipeout,
