Beyond the Break is an American drama series originally airing on The N. The series premiered on June 2, 2006[3] and aired its final episode on June 25, 2009.


The series focuses on four women in the sport of professional surfing. Birdie Scott (Tiffany Hines), Lacey Farmer (Natalie Ramsey), Dawn Preston (Suzie Pollard), and Kai Kealoha (Sonya Balmores) must overcome their differences in order to capture surf stardom. David Chokachi, Baywatch star, also stars as the girls' surfing instructor.[4] Ross Thomas and Jason Tam round out the cast as two male surfers who have their eyes on Birdie and Dawn. Michael Copon has a recurring role as both Kai and Lacey's love interest.


Production history[edit]

The show debuted in June 2006. Of the first 20 episodes filmed, the first 10 were shown as Season 1, while the following 10 aired subsequently as Season 2. The third and final season of Beyond the Break, consisting of 14 episodes, first aired on the Canadian network Razer (now MTV2).[5] After a two-year hiatus, it premiered in the US on June 8, 2009 on The N.

The N Soundtrack, released in 2006, contains songs from the series.

The network (now renamed TeenNick) began rerunning the series in July 2012 and promoted it as a "summer series".
