"Blue Water High" is an Australian television drama series, broadcast by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on ABC1 in Australia and on various channels in many other countries. Each season follows the lives of a young group of students at Solar Blue, a high-performance surf academy where several lucky 16-year-olds are selected for a 12-month-long surfing program on Sydney's northern beaches.

Plot Summary

Series One

The first series consisted of twenty-six episodes. It starred Adam Saunders as Heath, the relaxed joker who struggles with school; Tahyna Tozzi as Perri, resident glamour queen from the Gold Coast; Sophie Luck as Fly, the youngest; Kate Bell as Bec, the local; Khan Chittenden as Edge, the aggressive and competitive teen; Chris Foy as Matt, the generic 'smart guy' and Mara Scherzinger as Anna, a famous German Kiteboarder. At the end of the year, two of them (one girl and one boy) get a wild card spot on the pro-circuit tour. The first series was released on DVD in 4 volumes, though fans are strongly urging for a complete re-release featuring the entire season in one package as was later done with Series Two. Sophie Luck won the 2005 Australian Film Institute Award for Best Young Actor for her role in the series.

The winners for series one were Fly and Edge

Series Two

Filming of a second series began in early January 2006 in Sydney, Australia, with a revised cast, which included Sophie Luck who was back as Fly, Trent Dalzell as Corey, Ryan Corr as Eric, Lesley Mitchell as Brooke, Taryn Marler as Rachel, Gabrielle Scollay as Amy, and James Sorensen as Mike. It premiered on 28 June 2006. Sophie Luck, Adam Saunders, Kate Bell, Chris Foy, Tahyna Tozzi, Nadine Garner and Khan Chittenden have all reappeared in the second series in various episodes.

The complete second series was released on DVD in Australia on October 1, 2007. []

The winners of Series Two were Brooke and Eric.

Series Three

The third series began filming in October 2007. Kate Bell returns as Bec for series three and is joined by Craig Horner as Garry. The new Solar Blue pupils are Guy (Kain O'Keefe), Charley (Lachlan Buchanan), Adam (Eka Darville), Bridget (Cariba Heine), Loren (Amy Beckwith) and Cassie (Rebecca Breeds). Series Three began screening on Rollercoaster on 3 April 2008.

The winners are Bridget and Adam but Bridget decides to go to university instead of joing the Pro Circuit, so Loren gets the wildcard after Cassie literally 'draws the short straw' (as they both have the same number of points in the final surf-off so they decide who gets the wildcard this way). In the last episode, Simmo makes a surprise return as one of the three judges in what is described as 'one of the best finals Solar Blue has seen', saving the day as he pulls 'not a rabbit out of a hat, but an elephant', ensuring that the winners of the final surf-off still get a wildcard invitation.
