Summary

Kino Lorber’s highly anticipated North Shore Blu-ray edition comes in what I consider a special package, with a new audio commentary by Phelps and Kleiser, plus on-camera interviews (conducted during COVID, so it’s a zoom interview), deleted scenes, an alternate ending and a trailer. The series is an upgrade from Universal’s previous DVD release, so it’s every fan’s dream come true. It will be from the 13th. The month of April will be available.

Plot:

Rick Kane (Matt Adler, Teen Wolf) is a teenage surfing champion from Arizona who dreams of conquering the legendary waves of Oahu’s North Shore.

Review:

Rick Kane, a teenager from Arizona (Matt Adler of White Water Summer), dreams of surfing big waves in Hawaii – specifically on the North Shore – and hopes to make a living with his sponsors. After graduating high school, he gets on a plane with $500 and dives into the depths of reality: It’s too much for him. Not only is he an amateur surfer compared to the usual locals, but after a robbery that left him penniless and without a place to spend the night. But he was lucky: He meets a surfboard broker named Turtle (John Philbin), who introduces him to his boss, a local legend named Chandler (Gregory Harrison), who makes surfboards for all the famous surfers. Chandler immediately feels something for Rick and not only lets him stay with his family for a few months, but also teaches him how to surf. Rick takes in the vibe of the guru and becomes a fixture on the island. He gets into trouble with some of the locals and finds time to try an affair with a pretty local girl, Kiani (Nia Peeples), which soon becomes complicated. When the big sponsor competition comes around, Rick decides to go for it and to everyone’s surprise, he becomes a serious contender.

North Shore is a coming-of-age drama, with beautiful surfing and an authentic Hawaiian vibe, that passed in theaters but found new life on home video and cable TV. Adler alone plays the lead role, and he’s surrounded by true surfing legends, including Jerry Lopez, who shines as an antagonist and then again as an ally, and Laird Hamilton, who almost played He-Man in the Lord of the Universe sequel. Fun in every sense of the word. Surfing won’t be so cool until Blue Crush appears. By Randall Kleiser and William Phelps.
