Creating waves, Rip Tide explores the wonderfully magical world of coastal Australia while combing the urban high-end world of fashion to create something truly unique. 


After a fashion faux pas - every model’s nightmare becomes Cora’s (Debby Ryan) reality. Humiliated, Cora books a one-way ticket out of New York, final destination: Australia.Expecting a five star holiday with her Aunt Margot (Genevieve Hegney), Cora realises all too late that her idyllic beachside retreat has no internet access and is miles from the nearest city.


With the thought of the vicious world awaiting her back home, Cora feels trapped, but as time goes by, Cora learns to surf, friendships bloom and romance sparks between Cora and handsome Tom. When the community realises Cora’s hidden talent as a fashion designer, they rope her into creating the outfits for the big Surf Festival, but tension rises when someone adds their own flair to a design and Cora becomes just like the people she feared back in New York.


It’s not long before all is forgiven and everyone gets more excited about the big event. But when Cora’s mom calls to let her know that she’s secured a modelling contract with THE Morgana, Cora must decide between a career she’s been working so hard for to impress her mom,and the community that’s welcomed her with open arms and an opportunity to do what she loves.
