Continuity mistake: At the "Big Pipe" contest the star gets trapped under water when her leash gets caught on some rocks. You see her undo the velcro on her ankle and then abandon the board (with the leash attached). About 20 seconds later when she is diving below the oncoming waves you can clearly see the leash re-attached to her ankle.
Trivia: When the girls arrive at the beach at the beginning of the movie, they observe somebody who's getting worked by a HUGE wave. As he gets out of the water, they comment on him "he hit the reef" - "that's gotta hurt". This was not fake: The guy who did this REALLY got hurt that way and almost lost his eyeball.
Trivia: On the cover of the DVD, Anne Marie has bright blue eyes (digitally altered). Throughout the film, it is obvious her left eye is brown and her right is blue.
Manager of Lanakai: You can pick up your last paycheck next week, surf's up Anne Marie.
Anne Marie: Please don't suspend me.
Manager: I'm not suspending you, I'm firing you.
Eden: Well, if she's fired, I quit.
Lena: Me too.
Anne Marie: So you're seriously firing all of us?
Manager: No, I'm firing you, they quit, so don't get any ideas about un-employment.
Anne Marie: Seriously, guys, don't quit! We need to make rent.
