Best Disney Channel Movie Ever
3 July 2005 | by Polaroid_HigginsSee all my reviews

Sydney was born in Hawaii but moved to Chicago after a tragic surfing accident with her mom when she was young. Now she comes back there and tries surfing with her new friend after her dad said not to. After she gets into an accident and Kona saves her life she finds out that there is a Fiesta when the whales come up. A little romance between Sydney and Kona at the fiesta. All of Sydney's friends, except Kona, get mad at her because in the paper she said she sold their favorite surfing spot to people to build a new inn there. She was asked to sign a contract to make it permanent but she didn't know what to do. You'll have to see the movie to know all the details. I think it was awesome.
