A 5 part series written to work with LifeWay’s “Outrigger Island” VBS program. NOTE DramaShare is in no way connected with LifeWay, and these scripts were written at a DramaShare member’s request, we did not see any LifeWay materials, (other than that which is open and visible on the LifeWay website).
The “Aloha Surfer Dude” Al is a member of “SOS” – (Surfers on Sand), why? Because water is hard on his hair, why else? Al fumbles his way along and others try to help, usually unsuccessfully. Which makes for good fun, and actually there is a real, although silly, message.

Al comes on stage carrying a surfboard, puts it down with great flourish, adjusts clothes and hair, gets on board and “surfs” the pretend waves.
Al, falls off board: Whooooaaaa! Now that was a wave and a half I tell ya!
(gets back on board carefully)
Steady big fella!
(rocks back and forth)
These waves are about all that this surfer dude can take!
Lucky I am like a way good surfer!
Lisa and Reagan come on stage, watching Al, kind of shocked, amused, watch as Al “hits a wave, gets knocked off the board, lands on his back
Al: Wow, guys, did you see that wave?
Lisa: Wave . . .?
Al: That sucker must’a been like 80 feet high is my guess!
Lisa, confused: “Wave”? . . . You mean like . . (mimes waves with hands) . . . waves?
Al: For sure! . . . And I was just ripping!
Al: Like phat man!
Reagan: Who you callin’ fat?
Lisa: No Reagan, I think he meant phat, as in (spells) P – H – A – T.
Reagan: Lisa, no matter how you spell it, fat is fat.
Lisa: P – H – A – T, I think means like . . excellent, first rate.
Reagan: Then if it's excellent why not just say excellent?
Al: Who are you dudes?
Lisa: Reagan, dudes means like . . people.
Reagan: If he means people why not just say people?
Al: You guys for sure talk like spaced, my guess is you dudes aren't board dudes.
Reagan: Bored? . . Why should we be bored?
Lisa: No, Reagan, he means B-O-A-R-D, board people, guys who are surfboarders.
