The story begins with Dr. Dorian Peskovich, a Jewish American surfing champion who, surfing on the waves of Zionism, introduces the first surfboards to the Frishman Beach gang. This band of guys were the mythological lifeguards of the sixties, who went on to become the first surfers and together with their children, transformed surfing into an escape from the Israeli reality. They found their freedom in the waves and sea.
The film documents their metamorphosis from outsiders fighting for their right to surf until their peak at the European championship. They captured the adoration of youngsters, set the tone in fashion (Gazoz) and music (Mashina), and were the cultural icons of the late eighties.
Like the waves themselves, these surfers rose and fall. It is also a film about the Israeli character and the need to escape it.
