Surfer, Dude

Synopsis: Steve Addington is the world's preeminent surfer - cool, laid back, stoned, shirtless and barefoot, living off endorsements for surfboards and trunks, paid in cash. In Malibu his endorsement contract has been bought by Eddie Zarno, a surfer turned businessman who wants Steve to record his moves for an electronic virtual reality game. Steve just wants to surf. While Zarno tries to change Steve's mind, the Pacific goes calm - there are no waves for days on end. Steve's attracted to Danni, recently fired by Zarno, but the lack of surfing drains him. Plus, he's low on dough. Will he sign with Zarno, get paid, and lose his self-respect?

After six months of surfing

around the world

on the biggest and

Teahupoo, Raglan, J-Bay,

Mundaka, Frigates...

he's surfed it all.

Malibu's own Steve Addington

is coming home.

The Ben and Barry poster-boy

is now signed with surfing icon

and television producer

Eddie Zarno.

Malibu, California,

is now hosting the coolest

reality show of the summer.

The best surfers

from around the globe

will be living in this house...

and partying with

these girls.

Welcome back, Add-Man.

We'll see you soon.





Is that a job:

Not really.

What were you doing in Fiji?

Surfing epic lefts at Frigates.

Where'd the cash come from?

That's from Ben and Barry.

Who's Ben and Barry?

I wear Ben's shorts, right?

Surf Barry's boards.

Those dudes send me checks.

How long you staying stateside?

Long enough to catch

some buglass,

check in with my brothers,

keep the stoke. You know?



You know.


Welcome home.



Check this out, man.

- # Do you feel it in the sunshine? #

- This f***ing a**hole.

- # Do you feel it in the rain? #

- F*** off, man.

# Do you feel it in the ocean #

# When the waves are clean? #

# Do you feel it in the evening #

# When the moon is up? #

# Do you feel it in your bones #

# When she fills you up? #

# Ooh yeah yeah #

# She breathes good luck #

# Mother Earth, Mother Earth... #

- Hello?

- Dude.


It's the muffler you wanted.

It's classic.

No, I like it.

It's just...

I'm looking for something with

a little more boom,

you know?

# Do you feel it when you... #

Get the f*** out of my shop.

# Do you feel it on the mountains? #

- I love your hose.

- Thank you.

- # Do you feel it on the water? #

- Excuse me.

- What?

- # Ooh yeah yeah... #



Long time! Long time!

# Ooh yeah yeah #

# She's breathes good luck,

Mother Earth, Mother Earth #

# She breathes good luck #

# Ooh yeah yeah #

# She breathes good luck #

# Mother Earth, Mother Earth #

# She breathes good luck... #

Man, Addy's home.

- Jacko, man!

- Jack.



- Hey, mate.

- Yeah.

Where's Luanne and

the kids? You bring 'em?

Oh, no, changing diapers,

wiping spit...

Beware of what you love, brother,

because it can drive you mad.

Listen... hey, you talk

to Ben and Barry?

No. They stoked?

Stoked? No.

They're gone.

- They die?

- No no.

They sold out

to Eddie Zarno.

They're poolside at

the Four Seasons in Bali

getting their grendals twisted...

Eddie Zarno... surfer, Eddie Zarno?

He's cool, right?

Well, you know what?

We hope he's cool

because, dude,

as your manager,

I'm telling you,

we got worries.

We got financial worries, bro.

Not today we don't, brother.

I just got back in town.

I got no...

- We got worries, dude.

- Let's talk business tomorrow.

Definitely tomorrow, bro.

No worries, brother.

Come here, give me a hug.

- Here we are.

- Okay, bro.

- Mmmm!

- Okay.

- No worries.

- You're right.

I don't know why I'm stressing.

Everything's gonna be okay.

Everything's gonna be cool, man.

# Ooh yeah yeah #

# She breathes good luck #

# Mother Earth, Mother Earth. #

Hey, Charlie.

How's it going?


Hello, Danielle.

I thought we'd talk

about your decision

to work in Los Angeles.

What's the joke?

California, like "granola"?

What ain't nuts and fruits

is flakes.

You could use

a little granola, Dad.

When's the last time

you wore a pair of shorts out?

Honey, I just think

that you're being rash.

Anything that you can learn there,

you can learn at one of my companies.

I mean, Malibu and

reality television?

That's... that's your decision?


Well, I give you one week

with those weirdos.

I don't want to be unreasonable,

bro, but there's waves.

Okay, but, dude,

you have completely tarnished

the California work ethic.

Bro, I know you're trying to run

a mowing business and all,

- but there's swell.

- I just want you to know, dude,

you just harshed

my morning mellow, okay?

Jack, please, don't be


I'll mow the f***ing lawn later.

What's going on...

Page 35, "Killer Surf."

Well, so,

if you get time, why don't you

come on in and do your job?

It's going off in Leo, Jack...

Dude, when's the last time

you had a wave?

There's no telling, bro.

I mean, these guys are not exactly

committed to lawn care.

Most of these machines

are on the fritz.

I got bills up to my crack.

And Luanne is pissed at me.

And just, this Ben and Barry situation...

I'm gonna lose my mind.

- I'm gonna lose my mind.

- Let's blow through this, bro.

some decent swell.

Dude, let's take a moment

and assess the situation.

You have no assets,

you have no savings,

you rent your Malibu pad and you're

way too generous with your cash.

Stuff's like manure, bro:

you don't spread it around,

- it starts to...

...stink up the place.

But, dude,

we need fertilizer.

We gotta, like, fertilize

the money tree so it can keep growing.

About that, bro, could you

float me a few bills, man?

Yeah. Yeah, sure, dude,

but look...

Ah, you know,

Zarno... we gotta go see him.
