Three surfers from Malibu travel to Hawaii and find sun, surf, and romance. Joseph Biroc shot the spectacular surfing footage and a story was crafted around it. More genuine shots in this film than any other beach movie; those are real 30-foot drops at Waimea Bay. Greg Noll does the actual surfing for James Mitchum, Miki Dora for Fabian.
