Noah’s dad had waited until three in the morning, when the last of the crew was gone, to sneak aboard. He'd untied the ropes and started one of the engines and idled out to the mouth of the basin, where he'd opened the seacocks and cut the hoses and disconnected the bilge pumps and then dived overboard. Parents need to know that this is an ends-justify-the-means kind of book: The heroes, young and old, behave recklessly, often stupidly, and at times illegally, but because their intentions are good that's portrayed as admirable. Also, as the main topic is the illegal dumping of sewage, there's a fair amount of potty humor.

Coming from hardened backgrounds and negligent parents, the brothers raised up to form a clan of fraternal camaraderie with the Maroubra local boys, as well as strong statuses as world-class surfers of immense breakers.
The pool area is warm and the lights have a soft, yellow glow to them. In the background are parents, already in the metal bleachers, ready to watch their kids attempt to swim for forty-five minutes. I dress in a red tie-dye shirt with a large black cross on the back and the words “lifeguard” displayed on the front. Black shorts, a pair of Crocs for shoes, and a black plastic whistle on a yellow string complete the outfit I am required to wear for my job as a lifeguard. As the noise of people talking, the splashing of the water increases, and the warm temperature makes me sweat inside the pool area, most people would tend to get tired and start to doze.
I have faced many challenges in my life, but none have been as significant as my concussions. My concussions changed me; I found that I was not as indestructible as I thought I once was. The concussions opened my eyes to the "unfairness" of life. It was the summer of my freshman year. I had been competing in water polo all year long and we were in the middle of summer training.

Pikelet is initially captivated and inspired by the surfers from Angelus because they are different from any other masculine role models he has encountered. Reflecting on the moment when he is first introduced to surfing, Pikelet recalls how “there was something special about his insouciance and the princely manner in which he cross-stepped along his long, old-timey board” (p34). After Loonie and Pikelet go out to surf with the Angelus crew, they are introduced to Sando. The first time Pikelet sees Sando, he is described as princely, calm and effortless in his surf performance and are immediately inspired by his surfing ability, as well as his overwhelming sense of masculinity. Sando offers the boys an alternative form of masculinity through surfing and presents a sense of freedom, adventure and excitement that is very appealing to the young boys.
When he first fell off of his yacht and into the water, he wanted to thrash about like an animal and swim crazily back to shore for help, but instead he started swimming “with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more…” (218). So in that moment, Rainsford was able to reason with himself and control his urge to thrash about the water. Instead, he moved with agility.
