I wanna be the best surfer in the world.

I'm gonna be the best surfer in the world, not you.

She's just slotted in there. Look at that wave.

Anne Marie Chadwick getting the best wave of the day.

Anne Marie...

Hey, howzit, wave riders. It's hump day,

Wednesday, February 3.

Waves are averaging 14 feet in 18 seconds.

So there's definitely some size out there

in the water, and it's moving our way.

There's a little bit of morning

sickness out right now,

but it should clean up as the winds pick up...

It's flat. Yeah, right. I'm looking at it.

Anne Marie? What's up,J.J.?

Tell Eden she's a hottie. Hook me up.

Tell her yourself. How's Pipe looking?

Ho! It's going off. It's at least double overhead.

- You better get down here.

- Okay. Thanks, J.J.

Pen. Pen, come on. Get up.

Pen. Get up. It's double overhead.

Lena. Hey, Lena.

What? It's double overhead.

- What?

How's it coming?

I can't get the rails right.

They're too pinched.

You wanna get wet?

I got to glass before work.

It's perfect Pipe.

For real? For real.

- Move it.

- Yeah, move it.

- Move. Let's go.

- Let's do it.

Okay, got my noodles. Let's go.

Turn it up.

- Whoo!

It's going off!

What's up, bro?

Great. The Rat Pack's here.

Hey, what's up, guys?

Hey, Rico, what's up? Hey, girls.

We should have been here an hour ago.

If you would have gotten moving,

we would have been. We're all right.

What's up, Tamayo? Hey, how's it, girls?

How is it out there? Oh, it's pretty nuts.

Broke my board.

It's pretty heavy out there.

Your girl got her head on straight this time?

Does she? You know it.

- Oh, look who's here.

- What are you girls doing here?

We came to surf Pipe.

Why don't you check out girlie bowls?

Why don't you crawl back

into the cave you came from?

Why don't I knock you in the head,

drag you in there with me? Huh?

I like girls that are rough and soft inside.

I'm gonna have to marry you, girl. Let her go.

Seriously, let her go.

We're out of here. Okay.

What's this I hear about

you surfing the Pipe Masters?

It's a surfing contest, not a drowning contest.

Hey, stop hassling my girl.

She's gonna dominate. Let's see it.

I don't mind girls that can charge Pipe.

Chick thinks she can charge Pipe.

That's cool.

You think you can surf it for real?

I dated you, Drew.

I guess I can do anything, huh?

I'll get my boys out there.

We'll block every wave you want.

No matter how big it is, we want you on it.

Let's see what's gonna happen.

- Let's do it.

- Don't talk bubbles to me.

So meet us at the shower at 7:45?


And stay on the inside. Be careful, Pen.

Okay. All right.

Oh. Looks like the reef's breaking down.

Oh, he got shut down.

It's heavy out there. It's fierce.

Ohh.! Oh, he hit the reef.

That's gotta hurt.

I think we should start at the sandbar

and work our way over.

I won't argue with that.

- Yeah! Go, Lena!

I want to get a boat so we can go around

the island and get some killer secret spots.

Guaranteed. There's so many. Oh, God, I know.

Hey! What's this horseshit on the sandbar crap?

You're not gonna win

the Masters surfing the sandbar.

Talking this crap on the beach. "I dated you,

Drew. I can do anything."

This isn't Pipe. Pipe's over there. Let's go.

The Pipe's over there.

The boys are gonna block for you.

Let's do this. Let's go.

Come on.

Whoo! Yeah!

Let's go, man.

Actions speak louder than words.

Oh, that's the view I remember.

What, the one of me leaving?

It's my favorite too.

Come on, pick it up.

Like that wave, huh? Next one's yours.

Welcome to the arena, girl.

Let's get you into something big.

What's up, Anne Marie? Where you been?

Thought you were behind us.

Today's your big day. Let's do it.

Hey, everybody, this is my girl, Anne Marie.

She's with the boys.

She's gonna get some waves. Any of

you get in her way, you're gonna deal with me.

Here we go. Paddle.! Paddle.! Come on.! Move.!

Watch out.! Watch out.!

Spring girl's wave. Hit it.!

Come on! Paddle in!

- Come on!

- Paddle.! Paddle.! Paddle.!

What the hell is that?

- God.! You ain't even paddling.

- Girls can't surf Pipe.

What the hell was that?

What the hell is she afraid of?

- This ain't a beauty pageant.

- Oh, if you do that again, you're barred.

Come on, Anne Marie, you got to do it

this time. No fooling around.

Let's do it.

This one's yours right here. Don't blow it.

Or I ain't gonna help you anymore.

Come on. Paddle, paddle.! This one's yours,

Anne Marie.! Go.! Go.!

Yeah, yeah, yeah.!


You were in the perfect spot.

You were right where you needed to be.

Whatever. That thing was a beast.

Just dropped out.

How big was it?

It was solid. It was, like, triple overhead.

She totally had it. Yeah.

She just needed to paddle a little harder.

I don't know.

It's all in your head. It's all up here.

If you just would have committed,

you could have made that wave.

Whatever. At least she went.

That wave was huge.

- I would have never gone.

- She was perfectly positioned.

If she had the balls to charge...

Why does the sun rise in the east?

What? Why does the sun rise in the east?

Because it sets in the west.

Because that's the way the Earth rotates.

Do you remember that Superman episode...

where he was, like, spinning

around the Earth backwards...

trying to rotate it in the other direction?

Yeah. Yeah, yeah. To bring back time?
