MTV’s new show Maui Fever kicks off with these words from Body Glove pro surfer Cheyne Magnusson:

I’m Chayne. I’m a pro surfer who grew up here on Maui where life is full of sun, surf, and an endless supply of hot tourist girls. . . . we’re just looking for quick hook-ups from girls who are going to be gone in a few days.”

So we were ready for a delicious trainwreck of surfing stereotypes: moronic man whores and wannabe porn stars in bikinis. But the reality was so far over the top that we couldn’t change the channel. It you missed episode one, it went a little something like this:

Cheyne and his friends seem to have it made, surf all day and party all night. Drama erupts when Cheyne tries to hook his newly single roommate Anthony up with some new girls, much to the disapproval of Anthony’s ex Chaunte.

Maui Fever will likely turn out to be the most realistic portrayal of pro surfers ever to appear on TV. . . which is damn funny, when you think about it.
