'Surf's Up' profiles teenage Rockhopper penguin Cody Maverick, an up-and-coming surfer, as he enters his first pro competition. Followed by a camera crew to document his experiences, Cody leaves his family and home in Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off. Along the way, Cody meets surf nut Chicken Joe, famous surf promoter Reggie Belafonte, surf talent scount Mikey Abromowitz and spirited lifeguard Lani Aliikai, all of whom recognize Cody's passion for surfing, even if it sometimes goes too far. Cody believes that winning will bring him the admiration and respect he desires, but when he unexpectedly comes face-to-face with a washed-up old surfer named Geek, Cody begins to find his own way, and discovers that a true winner isn't always the one who comes in first.
