Rating: 0 vote(s).


Randy surfs the waves in April off his Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia home, dodging the ice pans and swimming with the seals. In fact he surfs year-round--in August and in February--and gets up before the sun to do it.
Come summer, though, Lawrencetown Beach is invaded by townies from nearby Halifax, fair-weather surfers. Randy is willing to help them out a little, show them how to catch the waves. Soon he's hanging out with a new, fast crowd. In the water everything is fine, but when Cathy, a townie girl, shows interest in him, Randy heads for trouble with her boyfriend Brian. Is Randy getting in over his head?
Set against a background of wild surfing action, Wave Watch is the story of one young man coming to terms with his abilities--and with his limitations.
