Relocated to Colorado in the wake his parents' messy divorce, seventeen year old California transplant Robbie Zirpollo lands a job at a local water park while attempting to find his footing on dry land in this sexy, sun-soaked comedy featuring Alan Thicke and Lindsay Wagner. Robbie grew up in Oceanside, but when his father runs off to Mexico with the secretary and the family savings, his mother decides to move to Colorado and make a fresh start. Later offered a summer job tending the grounds at Water World by his uncle, Robbie accepts and strikes up a friendship with amiable park employee Alex, who soon gets him transferred to Aokee's Surf and Snack shack. When Alex discovers Robbie is a naturally born surfer, he quickly sets about trying to convince the wave-twisting newcomer to enter the park's annual Employee Olympics. But while Alex longs to see the Surfer King trophy back in its rightful place behind the concessions stand, the park owner's daughter has a decidedly different agenda in mind for Robbie.
