Thank you Pure Publicity for sending us this DVD to review!
After the death of his father and losing everything, Jake and his mom move in with her estranged father. Neither of them realize that Jake's grandfather is a legendary surfer and known by all of the locals. Instead of surfing the internet, Jake is encouraged by his grandfather and love interest to surf the ocean instead.
Learning to surf isn't easy and to make matters worse, Jake isn't the only guy attracted to Kayla. He is both physically and verbally attacked by the town bully whom she isn't even remotely interested in. The town's surf shop owner Cody (American Idol's Jason Castro) is one of the only friends Jake has.
The only other actor I recognized in The Perfect Summer was the mother's boss played by Louis Mandlylor from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The acting was decent but the sound quality was really poor. Even with the 5.1 sound selected, we only had stereo sound and the voices were noticeably switching channels often. The story was decent and had some Christian themes woven throughout. The take away message is to try your best and not give up.
