Medina Mason and her twin brother Jim have just moved with their parents to the exclusive California beach community of Palos Verdes. Medina at 14 is awkward, hostile, instantly unpopular, while good-looking, easy-going Jim is quickly at home among the surfers, "towel girls", and potheads who make up the local surf scene.As her parents' marriage disintegrates and her brother drifts dangerously away from her, Medina turns to surfing, finding a bitter solace in the challenge of the waves. But no matter how much control she gains against the sea, her life, at home and at school, remains chaotic.
