WB following Vans Triple Crown competitors as they surf, live together.
Filming began Friday for North Shore, a WB reality TV series “will follow [seven] surfers surfing, training and relaxing, capturing life at [a] beach house and in the competitions of the Vans Triple Crown surfing events,” the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reports. Produced by former The Real World producer Lisa Berk and Love Cruise producer Bruce Toms, the six-episode show is currently filming on Oahu in Hawaii and is set to debut early next summer, possibly in June. Participating are Holly Beck, Chelsea Georgeson, Danny Fuller, Sunny Garcia, Damien Hobgood, Veronica Kay, and Myles Padaca. Surfing magazine reports that “the Irons brothers and Keala Kennelly were slotted to appear, but bowed out at the last minute.”
