Join the girls as they take on the world, one wave at a time!
Meet five very different girls with one thing in common: they've caught the surfing bug!
Ava has grown up in a big city. But everything changes when her parents decide on a sea change - they're moving to the small town of Beachcrest to open a cafe. Ava will be starting high school that year, and now she has to say goodbye to her life in the city. Her new school is very different and Ava misses her friends. When she hears that surfing is going to be offered as a sport for the first time, Ava uses her snowboard skills to give it a try. Not everyone thinks she can become a surfer but Ava is determined to prove them wrong, and she's making new friends along the way!
Ava, Alex, Bronte, Janani and Molly form the Surf Riders Club to help each other practise, but it quickly becomes much more than that. Whether it's learning how to get barrelled, problem parents or annoying boys, the Surf Riders Club are there for each other, no matter what.
Officially endorsed by Surfing Australia and includes a special message from Tyler Wright, 2016 WSL Women's World Surfing Champion.
