More Episodes

In this episode, Charlie and George go in search of the perfect wave and take on 90's action thriller, Point Break. FBI agents, surfers, sky diving, bank robberies, bromance and err, ooh some Buddhism. It's almost too silly, but yet, it somehow works. 

Recap - Ex semi pro footballer turned FBI recruit Johnny Utah is assigned on his first mission to learn to surf so he can infiltrate a group of bank robbers who call themselves the Ex-Presidents.
 
Coulda Coulda Shoulda Originally, Matthew Broderick, Johnny Depp, Val Kilmer and Charlie Sheen were all considered to play Johnny Utah when Ridley Scott was considering directing. Most crazy is the fact that Willem Defoe was also considered for Utah. Wait, what?!
 
Fun Fact
Whilst Patrick Swayzes surfing stunt double is rather obvious, he performed most of the skydiving stunts himself, completing hundreds of jumps in the process, what a legend! We miss you Swayze!
