Dana is a killer surfer from California who decides to travel to the breath-taking coasts of South Africa in a bid to fulfill her mother’s dream of surfing the legendary Jeffrey’s Bay.
With nothing but her mum’s journal as a guide and a fun-loving group of surf fanatics watching her back, Dana faces epic waves, tough locals and her own fears in this unforgettable surf odyssey.
