He’s the king of the waves, the god of the ocean… Surfules! It’s time for the Surf City Surf-Off, and Surfules and his broskis are having a bo-radi-bunga day. But when Poseidon interrupts and captures Surfules’ father, the Old Man Who Lived In The Sea, the friends must journey across the big blue to save the day.
