Why is Surf’s Up rated PG?
Official MPAA Rating: Surf’s Up is rated PG for for mild language and some rude humor.
During interviews for the documentary, family tensions between Cody and his mom and brother become evident. Cody’s laidback approach to life also doesn’t sit well with many other members of his community. Once he gets to the tropical island, Cody shows his stuff. Surfboard spills and crashes result in some of the boarders being rescued by lifeguards. One accident appears to cause a death. Mild sexual innuendo, some potty language and a couple of slang terms for anatomical body parts are included, along with a still shot of a woman smoking.
