''Surf's Up'' is a film by Creator/{{Sony Pictures Animation}}. It takes on an interesting style: despite being set in a world of [[{{FunnyAnimal}} anthropomorphic talking animals]], the film [[{{mockumentary}} parodies surfer documentaries]], complete with handheld camera shots and [[ConfessionCam interviews with the cast]] spliced in various places. The plot tells of a young Rockhopper penguin named Cody Maverick, who dreams of moving to the tropics and becoming a legendary surfer, like his idol, Big Z.

A 2007 [[{{ComputerGeneratedImages}} CGI]] animated film, and the second one from Sony's animation division. It earned a surprising UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination, and is so far the only feature film from Sony's animation division to do so.

In early 2016, Sony announced that they were partnering with Main/{{WWE}} to produce a sequel, entitled ''WesternAnimation/SurfsUp2Wavemania'', that was released in 2017, 10 years after the original film. The pitch is that Cody accompanies the Hang Five, a group of big wave riders (voiced by Wrestling/JohnCena, Wrestling/TripleH, Wrestling/TheUndertaker, Wrestling/{{Paige}} and Wrestling/VinceMcMahon), in their quest for "The Trenches", a legendary surf spot holding the biggest waves in the world. Contrary to popular theories, [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer it was not, in fact, an April Fools Day joke.]] It came direct to home video on January 17.

* BrutallyHonest: After Cody made a disastrous wipeout on his first try, Reggie's sandpiper assistant whispers to him "You should've stayed in Antarctica, kid". And he's the only one who feels Cody is out of his league from the start, and spends most of the contest worried about his safety.



* CerebusRetcon: Cody's father being eaten is first PlayedForLaughs when it is revealed at the beginning of the film, but when Cody is arguing with [[spoiler:Big Z,]] he lets slip that he's actually pretty torn up about it.
