Teaching yourself to surf is not as easy as it looks!

In this exclusive clip from the new comedy, Ride, Helen Hunt is hitting the waves on her own in an attempt to teach herself how to surf -- but from the water to the wetsuit, not everything goes according to plan.

In the film written and directed by Hunt, the 51-year-old actress plays Jackie, an editor from The New Yorker who follows her son (Brenton Thwaites) to L.A. after he drops out of college to surf and find himself, ultimately leading Jackie on her own road to self-discovery.

Along the way Jackie befriends a limo driver (David Zayas, Dexter) and reawakens her own sexuality when she meets a younger surf instructor played by Luke Wilson.

Ride opens in select theaters and on VOD May 1.
