Bucket and Skinner are as different as night and day, but the beach buds have been best friends since they've been in diapers. The teenage surfer dudes, who are on a never-ending quest for awesomeness, have three goals in common: stay friends forever, always be near a beach, and when not near a beach, find a way to get to one. Bucket has a crush on high-school classmate Kelly, the school's brains and beauty. Popular jock Aloe is Bucket and Skinner's hot-headed archrival, who sets out to embarrass the duo whenever possible (and preferably in front of the whole school). Also in the mix is Kelly's smarty-pants younger sister, Piper, who uses her smarts to come up with sneaky tricks to get her way.
