Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this surfing flick is a sequel to the 2002 sleeper hit Blue Crush, but it has less cursing and sexual references and stronger themes about family, friendship, and world culture (South Africa). The protagonist and her on-screen best friend are both fantastic surfers, and they're positive female role models who, rather than compete with each other, help each other reach their dreams. There's some mild romance -- flirting, dancing, and kissing -- and a few of the usual swear words ("s--t," "bitch," "bulls--t"), as well as one fistfight that leaves two guys slightly bloody faced. Overall, the movie teaches positive lessons about paying tribute to your parents and meeting your goals.
Nonsexual nudity: The same surfer's bottom makes an apperance at least three times (one time running, two times just walking around mooning his friends). Tara flirts with and kisses two guys. There's some provocative dancing, and everyone walks around in bikinis/bathing suits for the entire movie.
One fairly long fistfight on the beach between two former friends -- each guy ends up with a slightly bloody face. A menacing man follows Dana and seems like he's trying to pick her pocket; he later grabs Dana's chin and threatens her.
Language includes "s--t," "bulls--t," and "bitch," as well as milder swear words like "dammit" and insults like "idiot" and "stupid."
There are positive messages about female friendships and girls who play sports. Pushy and Dana both have to prove their surfing skills to their fellow surfers, and they show that girls can ride the waves, too.
Noticeable product placements include Roxy wear, a women's surfing apparel company (including a cameo by Roxy-sponsored surfer Sally Fitzgibbons), and The Bomb, a South African surfing magazine.
Drugs / Tobacco /
People drink at a big beach party and at a restaurant, but it's not clear whether or not they're actually drinking alcohol. No one acts or looks drunk.
