Surf movies never made it big in the U.S. This Australian rock/romance/surfing pic had a disastrous run here. According to Variety its opening week at 1 theater was $369. No wonder it only made under $20,000 in its entire run.

This was Nicole Kidman's first starring role. A year later she would gather much attention for another water based film -DEAD CALM.

Trivia: Name these surf related movies by their poster tagline:

A) The Peak... The Dream... The Ultimate Test.

B) If you want to feel the rush you have to take the risk.

C) Fasten your seat-belts and get ready for a totally NEW WAVE motion picture experience.

D) 100% Pure Adrenaline.

This screen heartthrob starred in one of his first movies in a leading role . This film turned out to be a boxoffice disaster as it grossed even less than WINDRIDER. Name the film and the actor?

Which one of the 4 films above was a remake of a 70s blockbuster?
