Blue Water High

Saturday 4 July, 4pm

Blue Water High has returned for its third series, following the high performance surf academy where six lucky teenagers have been chosen for an intensive, twelve month residential surfing and schooling program.

It’s a full on, 24/7 existence where the kids live together, study together, surf together and socialise together. Friendships are formed, enemies made and love is always in the air. It’s demanding, frequently exhausting but always exhilarating. A year at Blue Water High is a year no one wants to miss – it’s the ultimate teenage adventure in the ultimate teenage environment.

Today’s episode looks at Loren’s insecurities as it becomes evident she is comparing herself to her team mates. If it’s not Bridget’s wardrobe, or Cassie’s carefree nature, its Charley’s belief in himself that all undermine her confidence. Will a reluctant Loren tough it out on the waves until she realises she is actually good enough to be at Blue Water High?

Blue Water High is the smash hit surfing drama that has won numerous awards and accolades, and is now back on TV2 for an outstanding second season.

The surfing suburb of Blue Water is the perfect place to be a teenager. There are beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, and long sunny days. The cafes spill onto the streets, the streets spill onto the foreshore and the music spills across everything. And, bang, in the middle of this paradise is Blue Water High where every year 20 lucky 16-year-olds are selected for an intensive, 12-month residential school program. They come from all over the world – rich, poor, black, white and everything in-between.
Blue Water High is your average school in every sense, except one. A benefactor has established an academy there for students who are very good at one thing – surfing. The academy has an awesome reputation and its pupils have been hand picked from hundreds of worldwide applicants to spend a year getting the best coaching around. At the end of that year, one boy and one girl will get the prize they all desperately want – qualification to surf the pro-circuit and a three-year sponsorship contract. It’s the dream job of all time and the competition will be fierce.

In this series, everyone is experiencing the excitement of being at the academy but even though surfing is the main passion, they still have to face reality of school, housework and mixing with their peers. The new recruits take their time to settle into the share house and learn to cope with living away from home. They will take awhile to adjust to each other but as time goes on will get to know each other through surfing and school activities. Through all their bonding, they won’t forget they are competing against each other for highly coveted spots on the international pro-circuit. Viewers will be kept guessing throughout series two as to who will be successful.

In the first episode of the second season, it’s the start of a new year at the Solar Blue Surfing Academy and a bunch of teenage hopefuls are competing for the six places available. The competition is tight and choosing the winners isn’t helped when Fly, Heath and Bec decide to intervene.

Blue Water High has won a number of awards, including a Logie Australia television award and a Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice award. Lead actress Sophie Luck, who plays Fiona (Fly), is only 16 and has won an AFI award – being recognised for her role with the ‘Best Young Actor In Children’s Drama’ award. Starring alongside Sophie is Adam Saunders as Heath. Adam is only 19 but is already a very familiar face in the world of entertainment, with starring roles on Home And Away, All Saints and Water Rats, as well as roles On Broadway and performed in a Disneyland tour!

Blue Water High screens Saturdays on TV2 at 5.00pm.

In today’s episode of Blue Water High, Fly finally puts her passive nature behind her and surfs to win at a local competition, jeopardising her friendship with Bec in the process.

Fly keeps losing surf contests because she’s too passive, and is being elbowed out of the way by more aggressive competitors. With Simmo’s encouragement, she surfs to win at a regional girl’s competition. Bec’s nose is put out of joint in the process. While the girls compete, the boys are supposed to be support crew, but get caught up in a battle of practical jokes. Perri’s not laughing when she’s caught in the crossfire.

Nadine has long been a favourite on the Australian small screen with roles in many top shows including The Henderson Kids, Water Rats, The Secret Life Of Us, Neighbours and more.

Nadine has high praise for Blue Water High, saying, “It’s a good idea that makes you wonder, ‘why has no one done it before?’ I think they have, and I think it was called Baywatch!”

“This is about the kids as athletes rather than sex symbols. Sure, they’re good-looking and they’re healthy, but they’re not there to be ogled. It’s about young people excelling, fulfilling their potential and working hard. There’s a very positive message.”
