"Penthouse of Horror"

Chum Music is the 15th episode of the first season and the 15th episode overall. It originally aired in the United States on October 20, 2009, and later in Canada on March 25, 2010.

The episode stars Lo as she tries to save her reputation after lying about her dating a rock star. Meanwhile, Reef tries to start a surfing crew, but things don't go over well when Broseph and Fin turn him down.


The story begins with Ripper, Lance and Ty surfing in the Office. Afterward at the hotel beach, they declare a certain area of that beach with rock chairs called, "Chillaxland". Reef comes and tries to call it "Reeftopia", but the Seniors say it is "Chillaxland" and say Reef is not allowed into it and their surf crew. Reef claims he has his own crew, even though he does not actually have one yet.

Afterwards, the five core characters (except for Reef) are sitting around the firepit, where the girls are discussing their former boyfriends. When Lo butts in, she says she's dating a rock star, and asks, "have I ever lied to you?" (she was just then). Afterward, the groms ask her various questions (Broseph asks if he's a good kisser).

During Bummer's announcements at the morning staff meeting, he says Stone is coming to the hotel, which gets the girls excited. Lo feels guilty for lying but does not tell anyone. Bummer makes some stupid new rules, making the groms hate him more. Later, they see Stone (surrounded by fans and bikini chicks) checking in. Fin and Emma encourage Lo to say hi. When she does, she hugs him (making him feel awkward) and explains it's a traditional BC "bear" hug.

Reef then explores the hotel looking for new surfer counterparts to help him with his crew. Broseph declines because he surfs only for fun. After some sexist comments to Fin at the gift shop, she beats Reef up, badly. Out of options, he sees Wipeout, Johnny and Snack Shack playing tetherball in The Office. He then recruits them and they meet up with Ripper, Lance and Ty. They then agree to have a surf-off tomorrow at dawn.

Lo previously had lied about going on a date with Stone, so she hitched a ride to Sunset Beach on the Whalebus and faked an iPhone picture with Stone. She then gets a beaver tail from Snack Shack at his part time job, and does various other activities, in sheer loneliness. Afterwards, she returns on the Whalebus to Surfer's Paradise. She then lies to Fin and Emma (again) about the date.

Later, Emma goes to the bathroom when she sees a bat, freaks out and runs out of the staff house. Looking out from the front porch, she sees Stone kissing someone. Thinking it's Lo, she takes some binoculars to see. However, it's a different girl. Emma proceeds to think that he was cheating on Lo. She runs back to the Staff Housing, explaining to Fin the current situation. After a little battle (with Emma wanting to tell Lo what she saw, but Fin not wanting her to), Emma wins and tells Lo. Lo fakes crying to get sympathy from the girls, and Emma and Fin get tricked into getting her an ice cream float (made with vanilla ice cream and orange soda) from the fridge downstairs, and bringing a widescreen TV up to their room for Lo to watch, along with doing her jobs. They then proceed to get revenge on Stone.

First, Fin calls him in the early hours, pretending to be a wake-up call operator (2:00 AM wake-up call, 3:00 AM wake-up call, etc.). Then Emma serves him chum and seaweed at the Pirate Ship. Then they cause him to break up with his girlfriend, thinking Stone only liked her and forgot about Lo. After more revenge (including putting a lobster in the Jacuzzi), Lo tells them to stop. Fin and Emma, though, come up with one last prank; at his concert at the hotel theatre, they would drop a bucket full of chum on him.

Meanwhile, Reef's surf crew and the Seniors surf. But Reef's team (except for Snack Shack, who was playing Solitaire and never realized he was supposed to surf as well) were surfing badly and lost. Ripper then calls them ladies and leaves.

Back at the concert, Stone was getting ready to perform when backstage, Fin and Emma were holding on to a bucket full of chum with a rope. Lo comes in and tells them not to drop the bucket on Stone. Stone then asks them whats going on, and Emma yells at him for dumping Lo. He looks at the girls strangely, and Lo lets the truth out. He says if they stop pranking him he'll call it even. After a group hug, Bummer comes in angry with the stalling of the show. The rope becomes loose from its knot and falls on Bummer. While he starts yelling, the girls and Stone run away.

Returning to the situation at Chillaxland, the losers are forced to eat chum from buckets. Just as they were about to, Bummer comes in on a bulldozer, destroying Chillaxland and saying the seniors were slacking off from work. The story then ends with the seniors sad at the demise of their Chillaxland while Reef and his crew toss away the chum buckets, relieved at not having to eat the chum after all as they tell the seniors that they can have what is left of Chillaxland.



  • First and only appearance of Chillaxland.
  • First episode to not have Reef, Broseph, and Johnny as core characters.
  • First episode to feature seniors surfing at the beginning since "Board and Confused".
  • Snack Shack is seen for the second time not in uniform.
  • Stoked Radio:
    • We Are by Tupelo Honey
    • Angel by Peirson Ross
    • All Alone by The Hundreds and Thousands
  • The episode title is a reference to CHUM, a Canadian radio station once renowned as one of the most popular Top 40 music stations in Canada from 1957 to 1986.
  • The Bulldozer is a D9 made by Caterpillar Inc.
  • The first time Lo is seen wearing a watch.
  • Three of the four Tropical Tan Models make an appearance excited to see Stone Seabreeze.
  • This is the second time Lo is seen crying with real tears, even though she was putting on an act for Fin and Emma (who did not suspect then that she never actually dated Stone).


  • Despite Ripper being Australian, he says "Ladies" instead of "Sheilas", however, he may have said it just did it to sound more Canadian.
  • Even though in the past Johnny was considered a good surfer, his surfing skills appear to have slipped before the surf-off took place.
  • After the episode returns from the commercials, when the resort is shown the giant Wipeout statue on top is missing.
  • When Fin and Emma are taking Lo to meet Stone, Lo has hoop earrings rather then her pearl earrings and one of Emma's earring is missing.
  • When the camera pans up to show the stage and the area above, just before Stone is set to perform, the bucket of fish guts that Fin and Emma are shown to be holding the rope for in the next scene is not above the stage.
  • While Bummer uses the bulldozer to clear and flatten Chillaxland, as he mentions its founders "skipping shifts all week" as his reason for flattening the spot, he also addresses Ty while talking to Chillaxland's founders. This is clearly an error as Ty did not work at Surfer's Paradise at the time of this episode.


Sonny: (As Stone runs by) Rock stars today, no class I tells ya.

The Kahuna: Come here Armpit, time to go home.
Fin: Thanks for the skunk, Kahuna.
The Kahuna: Hope you know what you're doing, Armpit isn't comfortable being a mercenary.

The Kahuna: Betties and gentlemen, the one, the only, Stone Seabreeze!

Snack Shack: Did we start yet?

Reef: That's how you want it! I challenge you bums to a surf down! My crew versus your crew! (Lance, Ty and Ripper laugh)

Ripper: Okay! The winners get Chillaxland!

(Ty, Lance and Ripper laugh)

Emma: (Sighs) I kind of had a boyfriend in Calgary but it didn't work out! He said I was nice! Like a sister nice!
Johnny: I know how that feels!
Emma: Oh thanks, Johnny! You're so nice like a brother, you know?
Fin: My last boyfriend was all touchy feely! An octopus with fingers!

Johnny: Why had you never told us?
Lo: We want to keep on the down low! Stay out of the tabloids!
Emma: What's he like? Is he romantic like his songs?
Fin: Is he a killer surfer?
Broseph: Is he a good kisser? (Everyone looks at Broseph) What?
Lo: Yes, yes and yes! Come on guys! I don't want to brag about Stonie! It kind of cheapens our thing, you know?
Emma: Aww, you call him Stonie.
Everyone: Awwwww!

Bummer: Okay mouth breathers, eyes front! First the important announcements! One, employee breaks will now time by the second! Two, I'm instituting a strict new all buttons to be done up on employee golf shirts.
Lo: This is so humiliating!
Emma: Are you kidding me!
Fin: This is ridiculous!
Reef: Great!
Broseph: Aw man!
Bummer: Three, talking out of turn is a strike and that includes grumbling! (Everyone sighs) AND sighing! (The gang quiets down) That's better! Now for the unimportant announcement! Some guy is coming to play a concert at the resort! I think his name is Stone Seabreeze!
(Everyone else gasps while Emma shrieks)
Broseph: Stone Seabreeze!
Fin: Alright!
Bummer: Hey, what did I say about talking?
Lo: (To herself) You've got to be kidding me!
Emma: Why didn't you tell us he was coming?
Fin: Duh, obviously he wanted it to be a romantic surprise! Right, Lo?
Lo: (Laughs nervously) Surprise!
Bummer: Okay, new rule, all employees will maintain VIP distance from this Seabreeze guy! No coming within twenty feet of him unless it involves room service. Now get to work!
Emma: Don't worry, we won't come within twenty feet of him!
Fin: No, unless we want to be in the middle of a Lo-Stone sandwich! (Emma and Fin both squeal delightedly)
Bummer: Hey, girly shrieking is talking!

Broseph: (Someone prevents him from pulling his cart) Hey, what gives?
Reef: I do! Good news bro, I've got room for you on my surf crew!
Broseph: Since when do you have a surf crew?
Reef: Since I vowed to kick Ripper's butt and take his spot at the beach!
Broseph: Sorry bro, (Trying to get the cart from Reef) I don't surf competitively, I do it for fun!
Reef: What's more fun than making other people feel like losers? Come on, there are no other good guy surfers!
Broseph: So go betty! Try Fin, she's killin' it out there!
Reef: (Lets go of the cart) Fin, huh?

Reef: I know you're not much of a surfer on account of your girl parts and all, 'cause I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel. I'm gonna do you a solid and let you join my surf crew! (Fin looks angry) I get it, too thrilled to speak! (Flexes his right arm) Not everyday such a buff dude lets you join his surf crew! Well, you just look pretty, follow my lead and try not to wipe out and make us eat chum. dig? (Fin cracks her knuckles) Uh, you're welcome? (After getting beaten up by Fin) You betties got a funny way of showing gratitude!
