    Hello there



    Anybody who know if there exist a TV show, about a group of surfers, and ski instructors, or something like that. A fictional TV show/serie. I think it could be pretty cool.


    I like


    - Californication


    - How I met your mother


    - Nip Tuck


    - Weeds



    And suddenly it hitted me, maybe there's a TV show in a style like the movie "Lords of dogtown". Thanks! =)

    The surfing TV series that I know of are:


    Hawaiian Eye 1959


    Gidget 1965


    Hawaii Five-O 1968


    The San Pedro Beach Bums 1977


    Riptide 1984


    The New Gidget 1986


    Baywatch 1989


    California Dreams 1992


    Wind on Water 1998


    John from Cincinnati 2007


    Hawaii Five-O 2010



    Please note that only the Gidgets, Wind on Water and John from Cincinnati had a main focus on surfing. The others often featured it, but it wasn't a constant topic.

    Didn't the two Beverly Hills 90210 series feature surfing at times?

    If you like surfing, I recomend"Blue Water High" an Australian series that you can watch on Netflix.

    I wish there was a good Drama, not reality TV, show about Skiing.

    It's not a comedy, but have you watched "Graceland" on USA? It seems to be a cross between "John From Cincinnati" and "Miami Vice."
