SynopsisThis animated mockumentary reveals how penguins were actually the inventors of surfing, including behind-the-scenes footage from the Penguin World Surfing Championship. The film profiles teenage Rockhopper penguin Cody Maverick, an up-and-coming surfer, as he enters his first pro competition. Followed by a camera crew to document his experiences, Cody leaves his family and home in Shiverpool, Antarctica, to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off. Cody believes that winning will bring him the admiration and respect he desires, but when he unexpectedly comes face-to-face with a washed-up old surfer named Geek, Cody discovers that a true winner isn't always the one who comes in first.
