The guys shape up for a dangerous paddle out to Lanai where they face shark-infested waters.
After making the nine-mile trek to Lanai, Alex is considered the man by most locals. But, it's not all about guts and glory. Alex's escapade brings in the attention of Archie Kalepa, Head of Ocean Safety, who pays a visit to the Royal Academy boys.
Worried about the guys' lack of safety, Archie warns against pulling paddling stunts after partying. But, despite the seriousness of his pep talk, he pulls Alex aside after the meeting and praises his skills in the water. If Alex is really serious about being a water man, Archie tells him to swing by his office to talk.
Word has traveled fast about Alex's trip, and all of the guys want in on the action. They decide to step up to the plate and take a paddling adventure of their own. After picking up some supplies at the shop, the guys head to the water for some training time.
Meanwhile, Casey tries to recruit some girls for drinks in Kihei. He's ready to ride to the south side of the island and start some trouble. While he arrives at the bar with his girl, Tamra, he quickly moves on to two new chicks. Although it's shaping up to be a good night, things quickly take a turn when Casey decides to clock a random guy upside the head. The Bouncer quickly grabs his neck in a death grip, and throws him out of the joint.
The next morning, Casey and Dreyson head out on a surfing trip. Although Casey's memory from the night before is a little dicey, Dreyson fills his boy in on the drama. Casey admits that he has no idea what happened, and confesses to waking up beside someone other than his girlfriend. Hoping to shake it off, the two approach the water, but Casey and Dreyson both have some business to attend to before they can ride some waves -- puking.
Later on, Matt, Dave and Casey have some lunch and talk over the trip ahead. The group trash talks Alex and complain about always being upstaged by the waterman. Looking to make the full nine miles, Casey decides he's going to take it easy until the paddle out to Lanai -- less partying, more training.
Kicking it into gear, the guys get into full training mode for the two weeks before their trip. On game day, the six buddies face the moment of truth and start paddling out into the ocean. With an hour left in the trip, Casey is lagging behind and the group takes a much needed rest. But, as the guys start up again, they catch a glimpse of a huge shark beneath their boards. Pumping up their paddling speed, the six try and outrace the shark, but Matt falls short and takes a spill into the water.
He may have expected the boys to have his back, but Matt can only see their backs as they leave him behind. Stumble aside, Matt makes it back on his board and the guys escape a near death experience. As they make it to Lanai after a three hour trek, the guys congratulate themselves on walking across water. Once Casey rolls in after lagging behind, the group pitches some tents and starts to barbeque. They've mastered the ocean for one day, so it's time to kick back and relax.
