BEATSHEET
 
Notes: The writers use a clever device throughout the movie, pitting Ann Marie's desire for a life of leisure and financial security against her desire to become a pro surfer and the hardwork it will take for her to achieve that goal. If Ann Marie chooses life with Matt, she doesn't have to be a professional surfer to be financial secure and take care of her sister but is financial security the only reason Ann Marie wants to surf? Add Ann Marie's fear of being killed while training for the Pipe and the audience just doesn't know what Ann Marie will ultimately decide until the absolute bitter end.
