Wave Watch

by Lesley Choyce

Randy can surf the waves better than anyone else at Lawrencetown.

Randy can surf the waves better than anyone else at Lawrencetown.  When his beach is invaded by townies, he's willing to show them how to catch waves, and he's quickly accepted as one of the gang.  With the money he's earning at his summer job, he can even afford the latest gear - and a flashy car.  Every day Cathy comes to the beach with her boyfriend Brian.  She seems to like Randy, and he doesn't mind the attention.  That leads to complication ... and some wild adventures out on the waves.  In the water Randy is a hero, but on dry land - it's a whole lot trickier!
