Just north of the border, in the tired coastal town of Imperial Beach, CA, live three generations of surfing royalty turned societal misfits. The Yost family’s reign and reputation, once defined in the curl of a perfect wave, has been eroded by years of bad luck, addiction and hubris. But just as things look like they can’t get any worse, a stranger named John arrives — and the Yosts' banal existence is lifted into something profound, miraculous and, possibly, universal. From David Milch and 'surf-noir' novelist Kem Nunn comes this groundbreaking HBO drama series about the surfing Yost family whose awesome athletic talents have for generations seemed to come with a curse attached. Bruce Greenwood, Rebecca De Mornay, Brian Van Holt, Austin Nichols, Ed O’Neill, Luis Guzman, Matt Winston, Greyson Fletcher, Willie Garson and Luke Perry head up the ensemble cast.
