Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that young surfers and surfer wannabes will be very interested in seeing this movie that could have been a PG without the profanity. Interestingly, it's the older surfers who have the worst cases of potty mouth. Other than that, there's not much to worry about. There are multiple wipeouts, including one that killed a famous surfer. We hear of other surfers dying as well. In old footage we see a group of young surfers squirting lighter fluid into their mouths and then spitting it into flames -- you may want to let your kids know that this Jackass-style trick is not a good idea.
We see some wipeouts (including one that killed a surfer), but nothing graphic is shown. We hear about surfers dying.
Some strong language, including one f-word.
The surfers have about a laid-back attitude about taking risks and facing death.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some smoking is briefly seen, but if you blinked, you would miss it.
