Hanging 10 with hard-partying Hawaii guys is iffy.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This male-oriented series (women are peripheral characters at best) may well inspire awe in teen guys who dream of a sun-drenched life full of beer and babes. You could also say that it offers proof that you can make a living pursuing your passions. Overall, it's a lighthearted look at guys having fun while engaging in some questionable (but, frankly, age-appropriate) behavior.

How questionable? Try driving off-road without wearing seat belts or paddling out into the ocean in the middle of the night while drunk. Not exactly good examples for teens (or anyone, for that matter). And, naturally, the guys deem these behaviors "cool" and "awesome." Even the fact that the Coast Guard has to be called out to search for one surf instructor who'd gone missing in a drunken hissy fit (costing unknown sums to tax payers) is brushed off.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
