Beyond the Break is an American drama series set in Hawaii, that debuted on The N in June 2006.


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.[1] 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. Season 2 premiered with an hour long episode January 5, 2007.



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 season, consisting of 14 episodes, was originally set to premiere in early 2008, but did not officially air in the US until June 2009.

Throughout late 2007 and 2008, there had been many cancellation rumors largely because The N had not aired any advertisements for a new season and rarely aired reruns of the show. The N later ran a promo announcing that free episodes of Beyond the Break were available on The Click (The N's broadband media player), possibly because of these rumors.

The third and final season of Beyond the Break first aired on the Canadian network Razer (now MTV2). 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".
