Synopsis

When it comes to surfing, fourteen- year-old Kai Ford knows his stuff; he's been riding the waves since he was ten. He respects the amazing power of the sea and knows - first-hand - how dangerous it can be. But what Kai doesn't seem to respect is the privacy of others. Unfortunately, his prying nature sometimes leads to trouble. Will Kai learn the importance of minding his own business before he once again sticks his nose in where it doesn't belong?
