The most dangerous part of the wave
You gotta beat it...or you'll eat it.
The summer is hot, and so is action out on the line-up. There's a big competition coming up, with some serious burrito money attached.
All the brahs are in it for something. Lucas has his career and his reputation on the line. If Kai wins, he might be able to stay in Sun Haven and not have to hit the road again with his sketchy dad. For everyone it's a chance to close out the summer as a champion.
