Season 1


Summertide is a South African television drama series which tells the story of a marine biologist who moves to an idyllic seaside town after the death of his wife to start a penguin rehabilitation centre.

Marine biologist and father of two children, Martin Field (Frank Rautenbach), moves to the False Bay area to get away from a big secret – the death of his wife Julia (Amalia Uys).

There he starts a marine conservation trust for False Bay – but life isn't as simple as it seems.

The series explores the lives of the Field family and the interesting characters who cross their paths – each one with their own secrets and desires.

We meet Martin's mom Wilma (Terry Norton) and dad Jack Field (André Jacobs) – a retired naval commander who runs his household like a military operation.

Martin's children Tristan (Jan Combrink) and Lucy (Evangelina Hallock) must cope with the loss of a parent and moving to a new town on top of the usual stresses of high school.

Martin's youngest brother, Gavin (Ty Keogh), is a retired pro surfer who's running a small custom surfboard business and lives a carefree life of promiscuity.

Then there's Rebecca Solomons (Monique Rockman), who worked as a famous Michelin star chef in New York and was Martin's first love - but is currently dating Gavin.

Summertide was created, produced, writtern and directed by Rene van Rooyen and Corne van Rooyen of Red Letter Day Pictures.

Tascha van der Westhuizen is also a producer.

The head writers are Iain Paton, Rene van Rooyen and Corne van Rooyen, with storyliners Gillian Breslin and Sacha Stokes.

Music is by Ebenhaezer Smal and Daniel Eppel, who also wrote the title sequence music track. Additional music is by Modiagotla Shole.
