Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (3):

There aren't high expectations for straight-to-DVD sequels of movies that came out nearly a decade earlier, but this one manages to be entertaining enough to merit a spot in the rental queue. It's not that the acting is remarkable; the most recognizable actress is Sharni Vinson, who was a standout in Step-Up 3D but here is just a supporting player who comes on to say snarky one-liners. No matter; the surfing scenes are still thrilling (the film was shot on South Africa's beaches), and the chemistry between the two friends is refreshingly sweet and collaborative.

Considering how many movies pit best female friends against each other as rivals, it's a pleasant surprise to see two young women who aren't vying for the same guy, job, or wedding venue. In fact, the two guys in the movie are just romantic filler; the heart of the story is how native Pushy and California girl Dana work together to catch better waves, pay tribute to Dana's mother, and help Pushy land a spot on the professional surfing team.
