What's up, bro?
I peeled it! David K dropped it in the sand.
What're you staring at?
That surfer out there.
He's pretty awesome.
[sparkling sound, music swells, ♪]
Oh man, lo- look, [stammers] look at him!
Oh, did you see that bottom turn?
Whoa. Check him out.
Oh, look, look, look.
Look at that. Look at that!
Oh man, that's sick.
Yeah, he's alright.
His board's big enough.
Yeah, it's the length of his board that's doing all the ripping.
The poor uncoordinated bastard is just along
for the ride.
You had your daily allowance of kissing ass today?
Yeah, you wish you were that good, Ran.
- Dude whatever! - Check him out!
- Hey! Do you wanna go? - Huh?
Yeah. Alright, let's get out of here.
[waves crashing, chatter, noise]
[loud buzzing, grinding]
That's supposed to make you surf better?
No, it's supposed to keep me from looking like you.
Bet you I'll be able to surf better than you in no time.
And then you woke up.
I'm joking man. You're gonna be a great surfer.
You just gotta remember, it takes practice.
Alright little bro.
You better power up there,
we got a big south swell coming.
[spits, grunts] Eugh!
[clank] If it isn't captain six pack.
[slurring] Your mom home?
No, Ray. She's not.
- When she coming back? - For you?
Fine. I can wait.
[hinges creak, slam]
To be completely honest, I don't think my mom
really wants to see you.
[scoffs] You don't think your mom...
What's a punk kid like you know about what a woman wants?
I think he should leave, Randy.
You shut your trap, kid. [shove, grunts]
Why don't you watch what you're doing?!
- I'm sorry! - Why don't you take your hands off my brother?
Get out of here! You're drunk! You're going home. That's it.
Go on! You're out of here.
You saying I'm too drunk to kick some ass?
I'm saying it's time for you to go!
You saying I'm too dr- I'm saying it's time for you t-

- Did you hurt him? - He's shitfaced, Mom.
- Look at him! - Look at this loser punk you raised.
- What?! - What did you say?
- You heard me. - I'm gonna kill him Mom.
Get off my property, Ray. I've already told you once before.
Go! [door creaks]
[dogs barking] Screw you.
Every last one of you.
You come here again, I'm calling the police.
You understand me?
[engine turns, revs]
What the hell were you thinking?
[brakes screeching] Huh?!
I can't believe you went out with that guy!
What the hell were you thinking?
You know very well, I never would've gotten involved
had I known.
[glass rattles on floor]
I'm trying to get it all.
Okay. It's okay.
[kid panting, stuttering]
- I tried to get it all. - No, no, no. Don't worry.
- Shhh. - I think I got all of it.
- Let go, it's okay. - I'm sorry.
It's not your fault. Look at me. Look at me.
Skeet, look at me. Skeet, he's not gonna come back.
He's not gonna hurt you. He's gone.
[panting] - He's gone.
Okay? I swear to God, nothing is gonna happen to you.
It's your birthday, little bro. You know what that means?
It means tomorrow we're gonna get you a new board.
Yeah, bro. [chuckles] It's gonna be so sick.
You're gonna be a real surfer!

We've been ripped off!
Look what happened to the tire!
Hey, hey. Check this guy out. Man, look at this punk!
What's he laughing about?
Who that punk bitch?
Alright, I'm gonna go over there and kick some ass.
No, we're all gonna go. Skeet, you stay here. C'mon.
I can't change a flat tire!
our boards just got jacked.
You see who did it?
Yeah, we thought you might've seen something funny.
Since you're having so much fun laughing at us.
You think I know something about your boards, my man?
[Bahamian accent] I got nothing in my jeep, brotha.
Why don't you take a look for yourself?
We didn't say you took the surfboards.

Okay then. [chuckles]
Yeah, I know who you are.
I've seen you surf, Randy.
- You rip. - Yeah, ho, ho, ho...
You need to back your ass up, Randy boy.
- Okay, before I pound it!
- Tough guy! - Yeah?
Our boards just got jacked and I ask you a very simple question.
Did you see who took them?
What did I say?
Dude, he's just asking you
if you saw who took his boards?
Get in the car, Samantha.
- You want a ride, or what? - You gonna act like that?
I don't think I do.
Maybe I'll catch a ride with these guys instead.
- Mm, damn. What's up? - These guys?

Yeah man, same graphics.
That's Jim Wesley, man.

He was rippin' it!

How much money did mom give you for your birthday?
A hundred bucks? That's it?!

Alright, I got... Sixty.
Hey you guys!
I need you to help chip in for my brother's first board.
Hey, forget that, man!
Oh come on man! When is the last time you chipped in for gas?
That shit costs me, like, over $2 a gallon!
Come on. It's his first board.
Just give me like $20.
Appreciate it man. I'll get you back.
Willy, you got money man?

[laughs] Fine, bro.
You got any cash?
[groans] That's a cute wallet.
[chortles] Okay. $180... $190.
I got $190, Ray.
Well that's better than $100.
Alright, let's see what we got.
[slaps money around]
How about that one?
Haha, that's a beaut, ain't it?
But that's a little bit more than what you got, Randy.
Don't want it.
Doesn't have a sunrise on it.
Man that board's way too big for Skeet.
No it's not. What's up with the sunrise, punk?
All the best surfer's have 'em!
Look at that guy!
Randy, man. This board's way too big for Skeet.
What are you, a parrot? No it's not!
When I was Skeet's age, I grew six inches!
Besides, it's good for us to have a spare board
on the big days.
[all sounding off, chuckling]
What? Rick, no. Come on, man.
It's his first board. I got $190.
No, no, no.
Rick! Rick! [all yelling, chanting]
- Rick! Come on! - Alright.
Get it wet! Take it out of here. Alright!
[clapping] No, man, no.
I don't want it, it doesn't have a sunrise!
Do you want a surfboard or not?
I do! But it has to have a sunrise on it!
Oh my gosh, you know what?
You see this?
Are you happy? How's that?
You like that, don't you?
Alright man. Congratulations!
This is your first board!
Alright, let's go! Let's get it wet!
Rick, thank you very much, sir. $190.
- Here, Randy. - No, your board. You carry it.
[waves crashing, chatter]
Is it free-range chicken?
- Sure, why not. - Yeah, they're, they're...
They're treated very well.
Uh, yeah, actually... We're gonna... OK!
We're closed, thanks. [rattles and clanks]
- Hey. - Hey!
- Samantha, remember? - Yeah of course.
How ya doing?
We kind of met at the beach yesterday.
Listen, I'm really sorry about what happened
to your boards.
- That sucks. - Yeah, me too.
The Cro-Magnon man, was he your boyfriend?
[laughs] Who, Da Cat?
No, I would say he's more along the lines of...
...oh I don't know. A free ride?
- Free ride? - My car was in the shop.
So he offered to give me a ride from the beach yesterday.
Then starts hitting on me like I'm his girlfriend or something.
No, he's... he's gross.
So what kind of pussy name is Da Cat anyway?
I mean, the guy's a kook.
Well his real name is Victor.
I wasn't sure yesterday but, I'm pretty sure now that...
Victor and those guys took your boards.
Yeah, we kind of figured that.
I think I can help you get them back.
What can I... What can I do?
Tomorrow I'm meeting some friends at the beach.
- Why don't you join us? - I'd love to.
Tomorrow. Beach. Okay.
- Alright, tomorrow. - I'll see you later.
Thanks for stopping by.
- Got it! - Don't drop it.
[shuffling, door slams]
Alright, I need your help on something today.
I need to talk to Samantha about our boards.
Which means you're gonna have to surf by yourself
for a little while, okay?
Which means, I want you to stay in the short break,
and stay where the lifeguard can see you the whole entire time, okay?
I don't want you drowning out there. I don't want
mom killing me. [unzip]
- Oh my God... - But..
But you're supposed to surf with me.
[waves crashing, bustling noise]
Oh my God. Woo!
Let's go buddy.
[rustling] Look how hot she is.
You're supposed to surf with me.
What's up Randy?
These are my friends, Nicole and Natalie.
- Hi. - Hi!
Ladies, this is my brother Skeet.
- Hi Skeet. - Hey Skeet...
So you gonna go to your usual spot?
[giggling] The usual spot. Skeeter.
Yeah. Yeah. My usual spot.
I'll come get you when we're ready to go.
[girls giggling] See ya, ladies.
[all] Bye Skeet!
- Bye Skeet. - Hey Skeet!
- Yeah? - Don't lose that board!
[grunts, groans] God! [girls giggling]
[water sloshes, waves crashing]
Pretty big out here for a grommit, like you.
See where the water's swirling, right in here?
- Yeah. - It's called a rip current.
t's the first thing you look for o help you get outside.
- Alright? - Yeah, okay.
Grab your board. Follow me.
Get your board!
Okay, follow me.
Pretty big board.
- Got yourself a gun, huh? - A gun?
My brother picked it out. It weighs a ton.
You be around here tomorrow?
Yeah, I think so.
Well then, if I were you,
I'd leave that thing on the beach tonight.
What do you mean? Someone'll steal it!
Not if you hide it.
See that lifeguard tower there?
Right underneath the ramp.
Dig yourself a hole after everybody's cleared out,
drag that big ol' stick over to it,
dump it in. It'll be there tomorrow.
I do it all the time.
Don't worry about it.
Nobody's gonna know where you hid it.
What's your name anyway?
And uh, grommit...
Don't forget where you buried it.
Sure hope not.
Dude, I can't believe Skeet buried his board.
Isn't that the most dumbass thing you ever heard?
Actually man, all the old-timers used to do it.
You know, actually, Miss Surfing Librarian,
I don't give a shit. He's not an old-timer.
Hey, you guys think they'll be here?
Samantha said they come here.
She said Da Cat's into this weird surf voodoo shit.
Whoa. [distant yelling]
Hey you guys, check it out!

Alright, I'm going in.
Stop! Hey wait! God, Willy!
Dude, how many are there of us? How many?
- Give me a number. - Yeah four.
Okay, there's like 18 of them. Which means for each had
four hands and went in at the same exact time,
there'd still be two guys left over to kick our ass.
It's not gonna happen tonight, okay?
[party noise, ♪] Alright, let's get outta here.
Hey, do you think they already sacrificed my board?
Yeah, to the Foot-Up-Your-Ass God.
- Do you think maybe it'll help? - What?!
I mean maybe we'll get a swell out of it.
[grunts] You sure this is the right tower?
Oh yes I'm sure.
Wow, cool! Look!
What the hell happened to your board?
Oh ho!! [chuckles]
You were visited by the board fairies!
- Skeet! - Yeah!
I'm stoked for you, brother.
I'm keepin' it! Check out the fins!
What if it's somebody else's board, Bluebeard?
Nah. It ain't. He wanted me to have it.
He wanted you to have it?
- Yeah. - Who the hell is he?
You don't know him, squid-dick.
He's a real surfer! Oh! [laughs]
A real surfer...
I'm keepin' it!
That's for dang sure!
m not kidding man. Don't let e little grom out of your sight.
No worries bro, I get him.
- Meet back up at Willy's? - See you then.
Don't go above 55, and, you know the brakes
still don't really work, so. [keys jingle]
Okay so drive 70 and ride the brakes?
[chuckles] Exactly. - Yeah, okay.
- See you at Willy's. - Later man.
Nice work, little bro.

Yeah, dad I know.
Yeah, I was thinking about trade school.
No I didn't! I swear!

I really don't give a shit.
- Send me that. - Yeah.
[coughing, t.v. noise]
Shit, hey! Check the window!
Go check the window. I don't want my mom
coming in here to find us like this.
It's just, uh, David K and Skeet.

I don't know!
Hey, forget the beach bum man. Check out Randy!

Yeah, Zack had to leave.
See ya! [engine hums]
Skeet, I'm not kidding, who is that guy?
Just a friend!

Forget about his friend. Who the hell was your friend?
Skeet, who is he?
Skeet! Who is he?
Hey come on, Dobson. She got any sisters?
It's that girl, Samantha. We met at the beach, remember?

Hey, you guys remember that story about Waimea Bay?

[knocking on door]
I'm, uh, Jim Wesley.
Hi Jim Wesley.
Come on in. [door creaking]
Um, thank you for calling to introduce yourself
last night, I appreciate it.
Skeet is so excited
about surfing with you. It's all he talks about.
I just, uh, saw how much he wanted to surf.
[rustling] Thought I'd...
...try to get him off on the right foot.
So is it Captain Jim, or...
Skeet told me he was only doing what pirates have always done.
Bury their treasure.
It was you who got him to bury his surfboard, right?
Yeah, I wasn't trying to get him in any trouble.
[laughs, sighs] It's okay.
Actually he says the new board you got him
fits him better.
So thank you.
I'll go get him.
You got my brother's board?
I'm Jim Wesley.
Yeah, I know who you are. When do we get it back?
He should have a board he can manage.
The one I gave him is brand new.
Yeah, well I picked the other one out for him especially
so I'd like to get it back.
Is that you?
I made Surfer Magazine last year.
You see that one right there?
That's my dad.
He was a cop.
He died a hero.
So what about you, huh?
See there's a rumor going around here that you
spent some time in jail.
Is that true?
Was never in jail.
Hey Jim! Ready to go surfing?
- Yeah, let's get out of here. - Let's go!
Do you have everything you need?
Uh mom, I don't think this is a good idea.
- Why? - I just don't think it is.
Why? I'm going surfing, plus, you have to work.
Jim said he'll take me.
It's okay. They're going to Zuma. Danny'll be there.
What time you want him back?
- Uh, five. - Three!
I'll pick him up at three.
[sighs] See you at three.
Bye mom. See you later, Randy.
Careful with that thing!
Thanks Jim! [laughs lightly]
See ya mom!
Mom, I don't think this is a good idea.
Okay, let me get this straight...
All summer long you've been dying to ditch your kid brother,
and finally when somebody comes along who wants
to teach him how to surf,
You change your tune to "I don't think this is a good idea."
Because it's not.
Look, I'm glad you're concerned. I just...
...wonder what it is you're concerned about.
Randy thinks he runs the place since my dad was killed.
Sorry about that.
I have a brother.
You get beat up?
Actually, I'm the oldest.
I did the beatin'!
[car squeaks, hums]
Sorry about your dad.
And I had a daughter.
So you're divorced?
You mean they died?
You don't have to talk about it.
You're coming to this party
because you're my little brother.
But if mom finds out,
You'll be my dead little brother, comprende?
Stop looking at her butt. Come on.
What's up, player?
All kinds of people at this party, man.
How's it going, brother?
Where's Willy at, man?
Oh, drunk. Probably around the bonfire, acting funky.
Maybe he's picking up ladies, not like you two losers.
Oh!! [holler, laughs]
- Hey! - Hey!
Randy, we gotta talk, man.
Jesus Christ, man. What are you doing?
My mom found my stash, she gave it to my dad.
He went ballistic.
He said when he gets back from his business trip
I gotta join the marines and straighten my shit out
or he's gonna turn me in to the police.
He's not gonna turn you in to the police.
That's bullshit, man. He's a nazi.
You know it! Last summer when I got busted,
what did he say? - I know what he said!
I messed up again man!
The cops, or the marines. That's terrible man.
He's not gonna go to the cops. I promise you.
But what if he does, man?
What if he does? You know, I lose the summer...
- You know, the surf? - What're you talking about?
That's pretty shitty man.
You know, that's pretty shitty.
Willy wait! Stop! Willy!

And as I try to catch it...
...I'm almost on it, I'm almost there!
And now [grunts]
Jump on it! Now I'm riding..
...the whole of the wave, right?
Turning a little bit.
See? [door slams]
So what do you call that?
I was up first surfing... [out of breath]
Like if balance is wrong...
Hey Randy, did you see me surf today?
Nice to see you too.
I think I better get out of here.
Why don't you save some of those moves
for the waves, Skeet? - Okay.
Jim, how about... staying for dinner?
I think, uh, Randy needs a little space.
Why don't you come out with me instead?
Come on! Let's get outta here!
Give you a chance to...
...check out the guy's been hanging out with your kid.
About an hour?
When I went down, and was under the roll of the wave,
a dolphin came up right next to me, and it goes:
[shrieking, imitating dolphin]
- Then I wiped out. - I don't believe you.
- You going somewhere? - Out to dinner.
There are leftovers in the fridge.
I don't want you going out with him.
Talk to me. What's the problem?
He's a nice guy. I like him!
I just don't want him hanging around here!
Well it's not for you to say who I can see.
Mom! You don't know anything about him, alright?
All you know is what Skeet tells you, right, and I've heard
some sketchy shit about this guy.
Jim isn't even close.
No one's trying to replace your father, Randy.
Leave her alone, Randy! If she wants to go out
with Jim, let her go out with Jim!
- Skeet, shut up! - Hey!
No, mom. Every single one of them has been a loser,
and you know this. M- [stammers] Mike!
Right? They've all been losers. You know this!
Enough! Conversation over.
You're just jealous because Jim can surf better than you!
Skeet shut up!
I swear, sometimes I wish
you weren't even my little brother!
He didn't mean that.
No, honey, he.. he...
- He's not mad at you! - No!
[sighs] He's just mad at the world.
I haven't been here in years.
No? Me neither.
Skeet would love this tank.
That fish looks familiar.
My brother from another mother!
Craig Kealoha! How are ya? [pats back]
- Good to see you, man. - How is it?
Craig Kealoha, this is Jessica.
I've known this guy since I was Skeet's age.
- Wow! - Pleasure Jessica.
Nice to meet you.
Oh good. Hey brother,
you've gotta see what we did in the bar. C'mon, I'll show ya.
[bustling restaurant sounds, light atmosphere music, ♪]
How long you been here, Craig?
About five years now.
It's going pretty good, too.
Check it out.
- Oh my God! - Wow...
That's what we call Da Kine, brother.
Is that you?
I mean, I can't believe you're still alive!
Hey, he's a bonafide surfing god.
Look up there!
Your dad gave it to me a few years ago.
That's the board Jimmy won
the world title on at the Makaha site.
Craig, is someone paying you to say all this?
I am very impressed.
Sir, your table is ready.
I'll let the two of you get back to your dinner.
You ever get any time off at the garage?
Ooh, I'd love to get back in the water with you again, huh?
It's been too long, my friend.
[claps] I owe ya.
- Jessica, it's been a pleasure. - Nice to meet you. Thank you.
Make sure this reluctant Kahuna here gives me a call.
I heard it on the news.
A police officer was killed serving a warrant.
I never thought it'd be Daryl.
God, it was so hard on the boys..
For Randy, the weight of the world was
suddenly on his shoulders. I mean...
The day Daryl died, he felt he needed to be the man of the house.
Responsible for us.
And Skeet... [sighs]
He was so much younger. I don't even really...
...know how much he understood.
But when he finally got it,
that Daddy was never coming home...
...things started frightening him.
The doctor's call it an anxiety disorder.
They say he'll probably outgrow it.
I hope he does.
I think it was rough on you...
I was a mess.
But I didn't have much of a choice.
I had to keep it together for the boys.
If I didn't have them,
I don't know what I would have done.
[feet shuffling, boats off in the distance]
My wife's name was Diane.
We met on the north shore of Oahu.
She was pregnant when we got married.
But it didn't matter.
The timing was perfect.
Started...working full time in my dad's garage.
Molly was born.
Life was great.
They were killed in a car accident.
I didn't handle it well.
I couldn't believe they were gone.
I should be able to protect them.
I still think that.
I took off, grabbed my board...
...just left. For almost two years.
Then I came back.
I go to work.
And I surf.
[Randy] I don't know, man. I still don't think your dad's
going to turn you in.
Yeah, but I can't take the chance.
Listen man, I'm thinking about going to community college.
Wanna roll with me? We could do it together?
That's gonna make your dad happy, right?
No, school is worse than the cops, man.
I think I'm gonna split for a little bit, you know?
Go to Costa Rica, or...
Get a job on a ship, or...
...just play the bongos for spare change. [laughs]
How you gonna get to Costa Rica man? You don't have any money!
I'm gonna borrow it from you. [hearty laughter]
From me, right?
I got enough to get about to Mexico.
Yeah, Mexico. That's it, man.
Well let's do Mexico as like a final surf adventure.
I heard of this little place that's north of K-38.
A little trail that goes to this amazing point break.
Alright, so we get down there and some mexican rancher
chases us off with a shotgun, you're gonna be happy?
Man, I got a little secret map that I paid five bucks for.
[chuckles] A secret map that you got for five bucks?
- Hey have a little faith! - I'm having faith, man.
Alright, Mexico it is. I'm down, man.
[engine turns over, revs]
What's on your mind?
I was wondering...
What do you think about my mom?
I think you're a lucky guy.
She likes you. A lot.
I can tell.
Let's give her a try, huh?
[hood squeaks, clicks]
What year is this?
Why do they call it a woodie?
What are you, nuts?
I was wondering...
If things don't work out between, you know,
you and my mom...
We're always gonna be friends, right?
No matter what?
No matter what.
Okay, coffee's on me tomorrow...
- Oh, great. Bye! - I'll see you later.
[engine rumbling] Hey!
- Hey mom! - Hi Jim!
Listen, Randy and his friends are gonna go to Mexico
to go surfing. And they said I can go with 'em!
We're gonna camp out on the beach!
- Can I go? - Since when is Randy going to Mexico?
These are Willy's last few days as a free man!
They said I can go.
Can I? It's just for one night.
- Please? - Let's talk to your brother.
Hey Randy! [tools clank]
Okay, what's this about Mexico?
- Don't worry, it's off.- - What?!
Cause this sled is about done, it won't even turn over.
[sighs] But what about Willy?
Skeet, I know. What am I supposed to do?
[clattering] Check the battery?
Yeah, Jim. I checked the battery.
I'll call a friend of mine with a tow truck.
Follow me down to the shop, we can get this up in the air,
and see if we can't see what's up.
I don't think so.
Why not? Your mom is gonna bring this down to my garage
anyway. Why don't we do it now?
See if we can't get you guys back on the road.
Do it, Randy.
Are you serious?
- Can I use your phone? - Sure.
Hey mom, if they get the car running, can I go with 'em?
[sighs] Mom, it's my job to watch Randy, anyway.
Aw, Skeet, I don't know.
- Mom... - Mom, it's Mexico.
It's like two and half hours. I'll take good care of him.
Plus I got this sick new move I'm gonna teach him.
Yeah, he's got a new move he wants to teach me!
A new move?
[rattling] You better keep your eye on him!
Alright! And only if Jim says this is safe to drive.
- And no drinking. - Hold the wrench.
Mexico baby! You stoked?
[Skeet yelling, laughing] You getting ready? You down?
[tools rattle and clank]
That's your problem.
Why don't you get it off the rack.
I'll go get us something to drink.
You're pretty good with a wrench.
Yeah, my dad used to work on cars.
Guess it kind of just rubbed off.
You want water, or uh... water?
I think I'll go with water.
My dad used to collect all that stuff.
Always said that the customer's loved it.
I don't know.
Sure ain't a lot of business.
Oh my God, dude.
Is this you?
Dude that is the biggest wave I have ever seen, man.
I mean, where do you go from there?
That's the pinnacle right?
...the waves I catch tomorrow or the next day,
mean a lot more to me than anything I did back then.
Come on man, a surf star traveling the world?
It doesn't get better than that!
Travel was cool. People were great.
Problem was, I spent so much time trying to be...
...whoever that guy is right there...
I forgot why I loved surfing in the first place.
I'm much more in tune with things the way they are now.
Back then I was trying to prove something.
That's kind of where I'm at right now, you know.
My friends all think I should go pro,
my mom wants me to go to college.
Randy! What do you want?
[car humming, brakes screech]
Well that's whole thing, man. I don't know.
I guess I'm still trying to just figure it out.
[banging, car quiets]
Give it time.
Who are all these guys?
The old Malibu surf group.
- Ever hear of Phil Edwards? - Oh yeah!
That's him on the left.
- No shit! - Johnny Fain, Mike Doyle.
Johnny Riddle, and myself. A lifetime ago.
That's cool man.
A question for you.
Bring me the rag, will ya?
When you first started surfing, were there guys that thought
that they owned the waves?
You know, like certain breaks.
Who rip other surfers off, and shit.
I mean when did all the dick heads pop up?
Dick heads have been here since the beginning of time.
But nobody, and I mean nobody...
...owns the waves.
And if someone did think they owned a break,
we showed them they didn't.
In our own way, we showed 'em they didn't.
You're the locals here.
Use your edge.
So listen, I get, uh...
...paid on Friday for th- - No charge.
Forget about it. Reminds me of something.
Wait, are you sure?
I don't charge friends.
This is still too big for your brother.
[rattling] But you might want to
take it to Mexico with ya because if the surf is big
you'll be glad you had it.
Might bring out the soulfulness in your surfing.
Listen, there's this, uh, BBQ I'm having next Saturday.
It's gonna be me, my mom, brother, friends...
Catch some waves, eat some food.
- You think you, uh... - Sure!
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Bitchin' man. I'll count on you then.
Appreciate this. [door thuds]
Keep an eye on my mom for me, alright?
I'll get the door.
[engine turns over, revs]
Skeet, there's probably something I should tell ya.
What? We're not going to Mexico?
Oh we're going to Mexico.
But you gotta be 18 to cross the border.
Which means we're gonna have to hide you.
[chortles] That's bad language, son!
How much are these?
Yo Randy, check this out!
You could surf down this.
This some real hamajang shit here, Willy.
- Okay brother? - Yeah, I'm alright.
Do you even know where we're at man?
Real hot trail here, William.
Do you have any idea where we are?
This is bad for my stick.
