Longboarding soul surfer Steve Addington (Mathew McConaughey) returns to Malibu for the summer to find his cool hometown vibe corrupted. New sponshership demands Addington to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat. Out of money, his expense accounts cancelled, and betrayed by his buddies, Addington is backed into a harsh corner.
Aided by his manager (Woddy Harrelson), his mentor (Scott Glenn), his guardian angel (Willie Nelson), and his summer love (Alexie Gilmore), Addington has a chance of keeping his cool, but it's not going to be easy. The dude needs a wave, and there's never been a drought like this.
