Surfing drama set in 1970s Australia, chronicling the rise of surfing culture told through the true story of the Kelly brothers (played by Xavier Samuel and Myles Pollard) who build a business selling home-made boards and wetsuits, but find themselves getting mixed up with a local drug dealer to supplement their income.

For the next 12 years, the boys perfected their surfing skills. As Jimmy (Samuel) slips toward a life of crime to help the family out of debt, Andy (Pollard) bets on Jimmy’s surf inventions and launches a backyard surf gear business. They rethink board design, craft wetsuits and sell merchandise out of their van. But after dealing with a local criminal to help expand, all they've built up comes into jeopardy.
