Tanna Frederick will not be acting when she mounts her surfboard by the Huntington Beach Pier this weekend.
But she wouldn't mind taking home an award.
Frederick, the founder and co-organizer of Project Save Our Surf: SURF 24, will be among the actors taking the waves alongside professional surfers in the third annual charity event. Her team, the Redheaded Furies, consists largely of people who surf in their spare time, and it may take a little, well, fury for them to outscore some of the highest-profile surfers in the region.
"I have a lot of aggressive people on my team," said Frederick, who recently starred in "Hollywood Dreams," the film festival favorite. "I have people who surf all the time and want to be pro surfers."
Frederick, though, is quick to note that whichever team wins the 24-hour surf-a-thon, the ultimate winner is the ocean. The proceeds from Project Save Our Surf will be split evenly among three environmental charities: Heal the Bay, the Surfrider Foundation and Inside the Outdoors.
