If you close your eyes,

you will never wake up.

So come back to me

And now your love is gone

Guess that it was plain to see

It's a little more than love to be


It's not just about love

Almost everything

It's almost everything

And it takes more to stay, love

Takes almost everything

Takes almost everything...

They say the best surfer

in the world is having the most fun.

It's not about competition.

It's simply about the moment.

When you feel it,

you've come the closest you

can get to touching eternity.

Then you understand that freedom

is just another word

for nothing left to lose.

And a surfer on a wave is completely

unaware of anything else on the planet.

You lose everything.

And for in that moment

you really are truly free.

This is what I seek.

This is who I am.

Bask in the reverie

That's when I was young.

Ian, how was the surf?

- Eh, it was okay.

- Hi! How are you?

- What's up, bro?

- What?

- It's the trip, isn't it?

- What trip?

Hey, guys.

You beat me here.

How's it going?

I know you. You helped my mom

out with fundraising, right?

- That's right. I'm Roxy.

- Nice to meet you, Roxy. Ian.

We've been working

the whole day, dude.

- Gotta come and help out.

- Yeah, come on, Ian.

Yeah, yeah.

Next time, next time.

Well, why don't you

come out tomorrow?

- It's for a good cause.

- Oh, tomorrow...

- There's supposed to be surf.

- Yeah, right.

Seriously, dude,

you gotta come help out.

Mom will appreciate it.

It's one session.

Hey, Ian.

Bro, wait.

We gotta talk about this trip.

No, no, no.

We will help you.

We're not gonna let you

do that all by yourself.


Yeah, we will.

Okay, okay.

I'll call you tomorrow.


- Give me that.

- I heard "we."

What did you just commit us to?

I just hate it when you

eavesdrop on my conversations.

You know,

I have some papers to grade.

You wanna come sit with me?

- Gee, that sounds like fun.

- Oh, well, it is.

I wanna see, I wanna know

That we can be a part

of something good

You never see,

you never know

That we can be

part of something

I wanna see, I wanna know

That we can be a part

of something good

You never see, you never know

That we can be

part of something.

I wish Ian would come

and help tomorrow.

It'll be good for him.

That's not gonna happen.

He's in a rebellious stage.

He's been in a rebellious stage

since he was 13.

You know, I spoke to merv

up the road at the dairy farm.

He said he'd give him a job.

- With the cows?

- Yeah.

Might make him realize that

life requires some hard work.

What every surfer dreams of finding

is a small wave

with a perfect shape...

what we call a perfect wave.

- The odds against finding that are...

- Ian.

Dude, get out here.

This party's going off.

There's loads of hot chicks.

Bruce's beauties.

I've always dreamed of going


- I think it's time, bud.

- Are you serious?

I think we should plan it


- Leave in the morning.

- Yeah, doggie!

Dude, this is gonna be sick!

- So you're in?

- Definitely!

Hey, fellas.

Who's up for a night surf?

Yeah, I'm game.

Come on, dude.

On some of the rides,

I timed them in the curl

for 45 seconds.

- Yeah, go for it!

- Whoo!

- Whoo!

- Yeah!


I never expected

such an out pour of help.

- The congregation is so generous.

- Well, he returns.

Kim, don't say a word.

Where's his car?

How was the surf?

I mean, church?

Oh, honey, it was so great.

We made $2,000.

Oh, wow.

You know, I wish you'd think of someone

other than yourself and surfing.

You could have at least come

to support your mother.
