What the Teen Beach Movie Taught My Youngest

Disney’s Teen Beach Movie was discussed for months ad naseum here at base camp. Was the DVR set to record? It was a daily anxiety provoking question for my youngest. We had planned on being far away at a beach house the night it aired. Luckily the home had Cable and the Disney Channel was front and center on that special night.

If you missed it, the story is a blend of beach day 50’s nostalgia and teen romance. You know, family friendly programming sending those wholesome messages about individuality, self-awareness, and positive relationships. Complete Disney material, think High School Musical on the beach.

Since the flick features a young lady surfer, my youngest was smitten with the idea she could surf the waves too. If there is a will, there is a way and she had will, lots of it.

Beater Practice. (What is a Beater? A soft-foam board that can be used as a skimboard, a bodyboard or even a surfboard, but it’s surf-legal at city beaches such as San Clemente, Huntington Beach and Seal Beach during ‘blackball,’ a period when stand-up surfing is banned at posted locations.)

  1. That’s awesome! I wish we lived closer to the beach – my boys would live surfing lessons, especially after they watched teen beach movie – the songs are still being sung around here :)
