Two inseparable best friends in their early teens, Bruce Pike, nicknamed Pikelet, and Ivan Loon, dubbed Loonie for good reason, have markedly different home lives. Pikelet's parents are caring and affectionate, while Loonie lives with his violent drunk of a father. On a mutual dare, they cycle all the way to the coast, and the transfixing spectacle of surfers in an ocean ballet exerts an instantaneous grip on them both. Hungry for discovery, the pair form an unlikely friendship with Sando, a mysterious older surfer and adventurer, who pushes the boys to take risks that will have a lasting and profound impact on their lives.
