Movie Info

Young Hawaiian surfer Johnny Kapahala (Brandon Baker) gets a rude awakening when his dad relocates to Vermont -- a state seriously lacking in waves. There, he struggles to fit in at a private school where everyone skis. Luckily for Johnny, he meets public school student Sam (Lee Thompson Young), who instructs him in the art of snowboarding. And when a rivalry brews between Johnny and snooty skier Brett (Zachary Bostrom), they decide to settle their rivalry on the slopes.

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • Writers Doug Sloan and Ann Knapp take a cliched situation and don't do much with it, but script's brisk pacing moves the plot along swiftly enough to keep interest.

  • Brimming over with positive messages about perseverance, friendship, forgiveness... Johnny Tsunami has lots to offer kids in addition to the action-packed surfing and snowboarding scenes.
