The movie North Shore from 1987 was not a hit at the box office, but thanks to HBO, tons of 80's kids love it! The story about a kid from Arizona chasing his surfing dreams in Hawaii while dealing with Hui O He'e Nalu has all the beats of The Karate Kid in terms of guy finds mentor and gets the girl while triumphing over athletically superior rivals. The movie featured many famous professional surfers, and Laird Hamilton stars as the reigning champion, Lance Burkhart. Our North Shore shirts can help you celebrate Chandler Surfboards and the Hui O He'e Nalu.
Matt Adler, Gregory Harrison, and John Philben (who play Rick Kane, Chandler, and Turtle) actually did their own surfing in the movie. They only used stunt doubles for the more difficult maneuvers.
