"Surf's Up" is the video game based on Sony Pictures Animation movie of the same name. Surf's Up the video game follows the basic story of Cody Maverick in the movie. This game was developed by Ubisoft and is currently available for PC and for all Consoles


As the name indicates, Surf's Up is a surfing style game (using mechanics often seen in most skateboarding video games) set at the annual "Reggie Belafonte Big Z Memorial Surf Off" as seen in the film. Players choose from one of 10 characters from the film "Surf's Up" to play as, and will experience various spots on Pen Gu Island, from North Beach, to the Boneyards, as well as Cody's home of Shiverpool as they progress in the contest.

The players are given a set of objectives to meet in each match, including finding and collecting a set number of trophies scattered throughout the level, gaining enough points from performing tricks while surfing, and maneuvering through large gates. Each course has a large wave on either the left or right side of the screen that follows the player throughout, allowing the surfer to ride up and perform a trick as well as to garner speed for certain obstacles and ramps.

As you progress and collect the needed goals, you'll unlock new characters, as well as videos, artwork, and in-game shorts from SPEN featuring Sal, the walrus announcer.
