Sports docu merges surfing with Christianity.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Walking on Water is a surfing documentary with a theme of Christianity running throughout. Alongside lots of montages of surfers riding gigantic waves, there are many moments where the surfers talk about how important Christianity is in their day-to-day lives, and how it is the foundation of their identity. There are positive messages throughout, such as Bryan Jennings returning a favor done for him as a teenager by taking along two teen surfers on their first world-wide surfing tour, as well as many positive cultural exchanges. There is also honest talk of the less glamorous aspects of being a professional surfer -- the months away from family and friends, and the ever-present danger each time a surfer rides the waves -- as shown when the boys meet Bethany Hamilton, a surfer who lost one of her arms after a shark attack.
