Surf’s Up is a fun, engaging, and totally righteous movie about a young surfer penguin with big dreams. Cody Maverick grew up in Shiverpool, Antarctica where he was the only surfer. He has dreams of seeing the rest of the World and surfing with the best of them. The movie takes place at a surf competition where young Cody Maverick has a chance to prove himself as a pro surfer. This film gives a fun spin to the animated movies as it is shown as a documentary. There are times when our young surfer talks directly to the camera, and when reporters interview people and describe the gnarly waves. I recently watched this movie for the first time, and feel that it is highly enjoyable for all ages.
This is a great film for the whole family. I found it very clean and hilarious. The animation was very well done, and the scenery was beautiful. This movie makes me want to grab my board and hang ten. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
