JASON TANNER played by Steve Byers

Steve ByersJason Tanner has lived in Falcon Beach all his life. Traumatized at 14 by the drowning death of his father, Jason works with his mother at the Falcon Beach Marina of his Dad's dreams. But Jason has his own dreams.

With his blonde curls, beach boy good looks and bronzed physique, Jason is an all-round athlete and sports aficionado. On the water, he is an expert jet skier, windsurfer, sailor and a competitive wakeboarder. On land, he revs up his motorcycle - and the girls. When he's not on top of the waves, the mechanical Jason is fixing boats.

This risk-taker and heartbreaker is about to learn in the first season that loyalty to your roots, your hometown and your friends is only true if you are loyal to yourself. More important, Jason is about to discover that life is about more than having fun.

PAIGE BRADSHAW played by Jennifer Kydd

Jennifer KyddPaige Bradshaw is much more than brains, beauty and blonde hair. She is a complicated creature and a study in contrasts.

She is Daddy's little girl who arrives grudgingly at the beginning of summer in Falcon Beach a "hostage", but who makes the most of her circumstances anyway. She has chemistry with Falcon Beach's star sports attraction and local hero, Jason Tanner, but the two circle each other like caged tigers.

It is a season of many changes for Paige as she comes of age and copes with family problems behind closed doors.

Tanya is trouble with a Capital T, a whirlwind who is all fury and fire. She is determined to battle her demons, but there are temptations at every turn. And drug-dealing rich bad boy Lane Bradshaw is one of them. She wants to be in control, but she is like a tornado that blows in every direction.
