In The Perfect Summer, fatherless teenager Jake is happy living in Chicago until his Mum decides to uproot them to a small surfing town where her estranged father, Jake's grandfather, lives.
The transition is not easy for anyone and it seems Jake manages to make enemies wherever he goes, and this time it is the town bully who does not care for his interest in Kayla, another young surfer.

With neither friends or knowledge of surfing, Jake feels lost until Cody the local surf shop owner reveals that Jake's grandfather is a surf legend. Tired of feeling like an interloper, Jake asks his grandfather to teach him to surf but now he must face his fears if he wishes to earn respect and this means facing the biggest challenge of his life!

My thoughts:

I favour a Christian film above the usual Hollywood (sad) offerings and this is one film viewers will enjoy for not only the scenery but the heartfelt message it sends!

"The man you become tomorrow is the man you choose to be today. I can almost hear Jesus saying these words too. Let that one sink in for a while and let our every decision be made with the thought of the outcome and the future of that one decision. We reap what we sow."

Beautiful Carolina shores are the setting of this surfing movie and cast such as Martial Arts expert Eric Roberts and American Idol Jason Castro amongst others.

Definitively a film young people will enjoy for the beach scenes if not sterling acting performances but I give it a high mark because it is not just about the younger crowd but also the adults who must face challenges and are not afraid to take a chance!

"Sometime you have to find the courage to make some waves."

Wholesome and entertaining, this film rates 4 stars for family values!
