A somewhat nerdy highs school senior who spends all his time on his computer decides to learn to surf to capture the attention of a gorgeous surfer girl who moves next door.

More from UP:

In The Perfect Summer, fatherless teenager Jake (Adam Horner) was happy living in Chicago, until his mother (Sydney Penny) decided to uproot them to a small surfing town where her estranged father (Eric Roberts), Jake’s grandfather, lives. The transition isn’t easy for anyone and it seems everywhere he goes, Jake manages to make enemies, including the town bully, Tyler (JD Banks), who doesn’t like the new interloper or his interest in young surfing prodigy, Kayla (Katie Garfield).

Stuck in the beach town with no friends and no knowledge of surfing, Jake has nowhere to turn until Cody (Jason Castro), the local surf shop owner, reveals that Jake’s grandfather is a surf legend. Tired of feeling like an outcast, Jake asks Lou to teach him about surfing. Jake learns to face his fears, push through inhibitions and realizes that winning the respect of his new peers – and Katie’s heart – might mean facing the biggest challenge of his life.

  1. Any movie with Jason Castro will be Great! I cant wait

  2. Any movie with Jason Cstro smiling will be perfect!

  3. This was a great movie!!! Hubby and I both enjoyed it. Seeing Eric Roberts in a roll like this was amazing. Not the status quo for him, and he played the part brilliantly. I was disappointed that Jason was not portrayed singing like they've done with Brooke White. I thought both of them are great musicians/singers and that I was expecting Jason's abilities would be used. I'm sorry they weren't.

    1. Glad you and your husband enjoyed it Cathie. I thought it was an interesting movie. I, too, would have liked to have seen Jason Castro actually sing - perhaps on the beach or around a campfire. I noticed some of his songs playing in the background. Especially love "Only a Mountain".

  4. This movie was great for my whole family! Enjoyed Jason Castro's music, but really liked a song by a different artist. The song was "Everyday." It just made me want to get up and dance, and it fit the scene perfectly. I googled it and found it was performed by Tyrus Morgan. I am going to get this song--I want to feel like dancing every day!
