At its heart, it's about a boy and his shark. 

Surf & Terf!!

We need your help to make "Surf & Terf: Shark Through The Heart" a reality!! It'll be at least 20+ pages of pure sharkness!!

The Brief Plot

1987 - A great white, who later is known by his nickname, Surf, breaches the water in Sector 4, known as Seal Island, while attacking a helpless seal, but he never renters the water. How is this possible? Surf can now fly and survive outside of the water. 

The first thing Surf does is fly into outer space and destroys a Russian space station. Surf may be able to fly, but he is still all shark!! When he returns to earth, Surf encounters a school bus full of children. So he obviously starts eating it. But then something strange happens. Mackinterf, or Terf, a 10 year old boy on the bus, asks the Great White "Why are you trying to eat us?" This changes Surf's heart. Surf understands Terf & Terf understands Surf. They then high five. From that point forward, Surf & Terf solve crimes and fight terrorists and do other awesome stuff!!

1989 - Surf & Terf are now world renowned for their awesomeness. So, the head of World Cohesiveness, Ian, invites Surf alone to a ceremony for Snuffy the seal. But when Surf arrives, only Ian is there along with the corpse of Snuffy. It's a trap!! The Secretary then frames Surf for the murder of Snuffy. The world now hates him and he is put in a maximum security underground prison. Terf knows something fishy is up. But when Terf is investigating, Ian gets a blood sample from Surf in order to extract the stuff that makes him fly and survive outside the water. After this happens, Surf loses his abilities and is put in a maximum security underwater prison. 

When Terf finds out what's going on, he goes to see Surf. Terf tells him that Ian is a Nazi and is planning on destroying DC and starting fresh with Nazi control. But how can this possibly be possible? Easy. A Nazi megalodon!! The picture below was found in secret Nazi files.

The Nazi U-boat fleet gained access to French ports and had easier travels in the East Atlantic. Mainly around South Africa. This is where the above picture was taken. Terf found out that the megalodon in the picture was under Nazi control and always swam with their U-boats to protect them. But when Hitler fell, the megalodon retreated into the depths. But now that Ian has the shark formula for flight and out of water survival, the Nazi megalodon is of great and more destructive use to the Nazis. The plan is to have the Nazi megalodon with some help from Old Hitler(the great hammerhead) attack and destroy DC during shark week. And with Surf & Terf disabled, the plan has no opposition!!

  • Will the Nazis be stopped?
  • What happens to Surf & Terf?
  • Is a Sharknado involved?

These questions and more will be answered when you back "Surf & Terf: Shark Through The Heart!!"
