Fin: Okay, I have a toast! Maybe our jobs kind of suck-

—Stoked, "Another Grom Bites The Dust"

It is airing on Cartoon Network in the United States, and ABC3 in Australia. It is produced by Fresh TV.Stoked! is a character-driven animated situational comedy about a group of groms who come together one summer on the legendary Sunset Island, B.C. to experience the ultimate surfer's dream - the endless summer! Emma, Reef and Fin join locals Broseph, Lo, her brothers George and Ty, and Johnny Front Desk Guy to work at the world-renowned Surfer's Paradise Ridgemount Resort, stoked to have the summer of their lives. What they find instead - the worst jobs ever, hideous uniforms, zero respect, a run-down staff house, and a tacky, fake, touristy resort. For twelve weeks, they'll spend their first summer away from home and work the hardest that they've ever worked in their lives, but, most importantly, they have the opportunity to SURF on their days off.Here a Wiki
Broseph: So Johnny has the keys to the whale bus. And Johnny totally has the hots for Emma. Are you thinking what I'm thinking, bro?
Reef: Yeah. I should get some smaller cut-outs made. You know, for the babes.
Artistic License - Meteorology - In the episode "Clinging In The Rain", a massive storm hits the beach and floods Surfer's Paradise about twenty feet up. It would take at least a Category 3 hurricane to produce this kind of storm surge, the Pacific Northwest only sees Category 1 hurricanes once a century, it would be nearly impossible under current climactic conditions for a Category 3 hurricane to maintain its strength that far up the Pacific coast.
Attractive Bent-Gender- Reef as "Sandy Beaches" in the episode "Mr. Wahine". He disguises himself as a girl so that he can compete against Fin in a surf contest, and ends up being crushed on by the manager of the hotel. Hilarity Ensues.
Beat Them at Their Own Game: In "Heartbreak Hotel", when the guys allow Fin to join them on their guys-only weekend, they quickly find that she is One of the Boys to such an extent that even they find her too much to put up with. In response, they begin acting excessively girly, and start doing things like knitting, gossiping, and tea parties. This is of course too much for Fin to put up with, so she leaves them alone and they can finally go enjoy themselves the way they want.
Brain Bleach - Occurs in-universe for everyone who gets to see too much of the nudist male Bavarian twins.
Bratty Half-Pint - Todd and Mark Marvin, and Erica and Brianna. George is slightly older, but still acts like one to his older sister Lo.
Breaking the Fourth Wall - In one episode Lo and Emma get on Fin's case about her interest in Reef. Whenever one says something they appear in splitscreen with Fin who denies it and physically shoves their frame offscreen.
Burger Fool - The waitresses in the resort restuarant have to dress in pirate wench costumes.
Burping Contest: In "Brofinger", between Fin, Johnny, and surprisingly Lo. Later Reef joins in.
Butt Monkey - Wipeout the mascot, and Johnny front desk guy.
Embarrassing Slide - In "Grommy the Vampire Slayer", Reef is trying to convince Fin and Emma that the new guests are vampires by showing them a series of photos on his digital camera. In the middle of them is a shot of Fin in her bikini. Reef immediately claims that someone else must have borrowed his camera.
Getting Crap Past the Radar - Are you kidding me? This is by the people who created 6teen and the Total Drama series, what do YOU think?! Most notably, they parodied the term "MILF" in a recent episode, with Fin calling Reef's mom a "MILS", meaning "Mom I'd Like to Surf With". Reef's Mom then says "Oh..awkward.."
In Episode 9, after seeing a photo of Reef accidentally flashing some tourists, Fin said "funny, I though it was warmer this morning..."
From "Sweet Sweet Meat Cheat", when Fin comments on Lo's threat to Reef to either give up meat or end up dating his own hand for the rest of the summer: "Yeah, you can go on a double date with Johnny and HIS hand."
It's implied that everyone working at the resort who acts like a jerk pretty much does so only because their jobs are so stressful.
This was confirmed in "Endless Bummer", when Bummer is seen to be so stressed out from the rigors of his job that he breaks down crying, leading to the groms helping him deal with his stress. After the resultant We Want Our Jerk Back storyline, Bummer returns to his normal strict self, though he gets another heart of gold moment when he sincerely thanks the groms for helping him get over his stress.
Averted, however, with Kelly. At the start of the series it was implied that she was only a jerk because she was mad at Lo for being so spoiled and bratty, but as things panned out later on she proved to be pretty much a Jerk Ass, with only a single moment of caring about Emma's well-being in "Penthouse Of Horror" implying otherwise.
The Law of Conservation of Detail - One episode featured the Ridgemounts (minus Lo) planning a trip to Thailand and one of Lo's friends recorded on Smartphone what she thought of them for that. Later, they record evidence that Lo's big brother's girlfriend was a Gold Digger. Guess what Lo showed her family.
Laxative Prank - During the strike episode, Bummer has Wipeout feed the strikers laxative laced donuts.
Line-of-Sight Name - When Reef was dressed as a girl and got asked to enter a female surf contest. When asked for his name, he looked at the sand he was standing on and came up with "Sandy... Beaches".
Loophole Abuse - In "Boards of Glory", Reef and Broseph compete in the tandem surf competition after Lo discovers that there is nothing the rules that specifies that the pair must be male and female.
Magic Feather - the 'magic' board shorts in "Boardy Brotherhood".
"And watch out for the third step. It's kinda -" *crunch* "- busted."
Mistaken for Cheating - Happens to Reef in "Sweet, Sweet Meat Cheat". Fin overhears Reef make a comment about cheating on Lo and assumes the worse. He is actually 'cheating' on the vegetarian diet she put him on by eating franks.
Mistaken for Special Guest - One episode featured this. Most of it focused on the resort staff trying to redeem themselves in front of the real special guest.
Sounding It Out: Lampshaded in the episode with the STOKE. Reef passes Fin a note, who promptly reads it aloud. Reef replies that if he wanted it read aloud, he would've just said it instead of giving her a note.
Spoiler Opening - The Season 2 intro replaces the last scene with Reef's arm around Fin with Reef and Lo holding hands, and Fin on the other end of the group
Straw Misogynist - Reef, who tends to tick Fin off with his insistence that girls can't be equals to men in surfing or similar activities, despite the fact Fin is his equal (or superior) in pretty much every "guy thing" they end up competing in.
Surfer Dude: The whole point of the series; three surfer dudes, three surfer dudettes.
Thieving Magpie - A thieving seagull causes Reef to be suspected of being a thief in "To Catch a Reef".
Totem Pole Trench - In "The Very Very Very Very Very Important Guest" George and Grommet stack up on each other and with Grommet on top so they can pass off as Broseph.
Ultimate Job Security: Played straight or averted on a case-by-case basis. Reef and Fin both skipped work in "Fast Time When The Rip Tide's High" with no repercussions despite guests complaining about their absences. In the same episode, Broseph steals an irreplaceable vintage board from a popular exhibit at the hotel, and breaks it while Lo left ignored her tables in the hotel restaurant, leaving the guests complaining about the terrible service, again with no repercussions. In contrast, Bummer threatened Emma with termination unless she removed a turtle that was laying eggs from the beach, and did fire her when she brought the turtle into the hotel, but changed his mind after seeing guests cooing over the turtles.
Vehicular Sabotage - The groms sabotage Bummer's golf cart in "A Prank Too Far", leading them to think that they've killed him.
We Should Get Another Tape - In "Boards of Glory", Johnny is supposed to video the opposing team for a tandem surf competition so Reef and Broseph can study their technique for weaknesses. Instead, he ends up shooting nothing but footage of his crush Emma surfing. The end of the tape shows him pretending the camera is Emma and kissing it; much to Reef and Broseph's amusement.
Wild Teen Party - Lo's End of The School Year party at the hotel, which gets so out of control (pretty much trashing the entire beach area and pool - Broseph drove Lo's jeep into said pool, and it lost most of its chairs to a bonfire - and ultimately drawing the attention of the RCMP and a television news crew) that it leaves her working to pay for it for the rest of the show.
Wig, Dress, Accent - In "Heartbreak Hotel", Emma dons a blonde wig and a pair of sunglasses and adopts a French accent in order to become 'Gemma' and become Ty's rebound girl.
William Telling - In "Surfer's Got Talent", Broseph discovers he has an uncanny aim with a water hose and attempts to shoot a half-eaten apple off Emma's head.
Wondrous Ladies Room - In "Surf Surf Revolution", Johnny and Broseph are being chased and lose their pursuers by running through the ladies room. Afterwards, Broseph comments on how much nicer the ladies room is than the mens room.
