Is It Any Good?

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

The mildly entertaining series features talented surfers riding artificially generated waves for a chance at cash and a shot at a world tour. While some of the drama comes from watching these folks compete in their sport and show off their individual talents, it also features lots of catty behavior and alliance-making as the contestants do whatever they can to stay in the game. The strategies used to win are predictable, but if you enjoy surfing, The Ultimate Surfer may be worth checking out.
