Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board

Synopsis: In the movie, Johnny Kapahala, a teen snowboarding champion from Vermont, returns to Oahu, Hawaii, for the wedding of his hero -- his grandfather, local surf legend Johnny Tsunami -- and to catch a few famous Kauai waves. When Johnny arrives, he meets his new family including "Uncle Chris" (the 12-year-old son of his new step-grandmother) who resents the upcoming marriage. Chris's only interest is to join a mountain boarding crew led by a teenage bully. When Johnny's grandfather and his new wife open a surf shop that also caters to mountain boarders, they are soon embroiled in a turf war with a rival shop owner who wants to shut their business down. Chris's antics cause complications for the store opening and the wedding, but eventually he reaches out to Johnny who helps Chris find his place within the new family and settle a turf war between the dueling sports shops.

In case some of you don't

remember, my name is Johnny Kapahala.

I've probably changed a little

since the last time some of you saw me.

A few years ago, I moved

from sunny Hawaii to snowy Vermont.

Traded my surfboard for a snowboard.

But this week,

if I'd have known what was coming,

what a wild ride it would be,

I mighta just stayed on the mountain.

Whoa! Whoa!

No! No! No!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Johnny. Johnny.

- You OK?

- Yup.

Gnarly dream.

- How does it feel to be back in Hawaii?

- Awesome.

- Like we've been away forever.

- Never thought we'd come back

- to see my father get, you know...

- Hitched? Tied down? Hooked up?

How about just "married?"

- Are you OK with this, Dad?

- No. Yeah, I'm good.

It's because we haven't met

Grandpa's squeeze yet, isn't it?

- Her name is Carla.

- No, that's not it.

This is about Carla's son, isn't it?

Well, don't you think

it's just a little strange?

I've always been an only child

and now, what's his name, Chris?

Dad hasn't said two words about him.

I think it's nice that Johnny's

gonna have an uncle.

Dad, this isn't the way

to Grandpa's house.

We're gonna stay

in the city for a couple of days.

Your dad has a business meeting and,

uh, I wanna buy some summer clothes.

OK, well,

how am I supposed to get there?

We arranged a ride

with a friend of ours.

What up?

Sam!

Sam. Ah! What's up, man?

Yeah!

- You gonna be OK, Johnny?

- How's it, bro?

I'm good, man.

Better, now that my boy is here!

- I think he'll be fine.

- You got ugly on me, man.

- See you at Grandpa's.

- You look good, bro.

Thanks, man!

Aloha, sun!

- Aloha, palm trees!

- Yo, yo. Chill, bro.

I mean, I'm the one that's been

in Iceland for four years, remember?

- Yeah.

- I should be the one saying...

Oh, mahalo, Hawaii.

- Hey, hey, hey, eyes front, junior!

- I got it.

Whew! Man, I still can't

believe you live here.

Yeah. I thought it

was a joke when Dad told me

he was transferred here to Hickam.

Whoa, bro, check it out.

- You saw that, right?

- Uh, yeah.

All right, man.

- All right, dog, thanks for this.

- All right, OK.

- Tell your grandpa I said hi.

- You got it.

- All right, man. Push out.

- Later.

Grandpa?

Right on. Surfs up.

What is this?

Whoa! Ah!

Hey!

I told you, this is stupid!

- I don't want to surf!

- Hey!

Hey, Grandpa!

Hey, Pono!

What's up?

Hey, how are you, Pono?

- Nice haircut! Kinda short, huh?

- Yeah.

Whoa!

I never thought I'd see that.

Well, let me tell you, Pono,

there are plenty of changes around here.

- Like you giving surf lessons?

- Ah, only to tourists.

- Why, you need one?

- Who you callin' a tourist?

- Hey, you got a visitor.

- Oh, no, that's not a visitor.

That's my Carla, Pono.

You ready for this?

If you love her, Grandpa,

I know I'll love her.

That's my grandson.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- Carla, this is Johnny.

- Nice to meet you.

Oh, give me a hug!

I have heard so much about you!

- Great to meet you.

- It's good to meet you too.

- Should we go inside? I made dinner.

- Yes!

Where's Chris?

I thought he was with you.

Hey, he'll be here. He's hungry.

- Mmm, I smell Huli Huli chicken.

- Your favorite.

I'll have you know it was the first

Hawaiian dish that I learned to make.

Oh, hey, Johnny, um, about your room.

Um, the house that I'm renting down

the beach ended up being really small,

so Chris stays here.

I hope that's OK.

Totally cool.

You know, I can't wait to meet him.

Never had an uncle. He might

not want to hang around with a teenager,

but I've always

related well to adults.

Uh, Johnny...

- What?
