The official trailer too survive summer was released early last month and featured Summer Torres proud of being kicked out of several exclusive private schools. To calm her down, her family sent her to the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. She was then greeted by a stupidly optimistic host family who welcomed her at the cutesy airport.

Initially, Torres disliked surfing, which, according to her new adoptive sister, “is all that’s talked about in this town.” But eventually she finds her new favorite sport and her own community.

It could be the empowerment she felt, or the grounding feeling of taking on the waves, or just young men, but Torres knows what she wants.

survive summer was filmed in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia from March 2021 to May 2021. The series follows a rebellious teenager who is forced to move to Australia and ends up falling in love with the city, the people and surfing.

The series will also delve into the goofy fair play of high school life in different zones, like Summer’s big move from Brooklyn to a small town where she’ll have an alternative life experience. Viewers will see all the ups and downs of life through the eyes of a teenager.

The series will entertain tweens and teens with its sunny setting and cross-continental relationship drama, and is particularly appealing to all young surfers looking for role models.
