Surf's Up is an animated mockumentary that takes aim at famous surfing documentaries such as "Endless Summer" and "Riding Giants." Cody Maverick (Shia LaBeouf) is a penguin from Antarctica who aspires to be like his famous surfing hero Ezekiel "Big Z" Topanga (Jeff Bridges). Cody is scouted out to participate in the Memorial "Big Z" Surf Off. He leaves his hometown of Shiverpool and makes his way to the beaches of Pen Gu Island. While training Cody meets several memorable characters including surfing enthusiast Chicken Joe (Jon Heder) and a lifeguard named Lani (Zooey Deschanel). Shortly after his arrival, Cody realizes he is not as experienced as he once thought. He finally crosses paths with his childhood hero Big Z. Although initially reluctant, Big Z finally agrees to mentor Cody. Through Big Z's guidance Cody learns many valuable life lessons and finally realizes that there are far more important things than winning.
