Max transforms into Turbo Wave Rider Mode and activates his surfboard and when he reaches the water, he does various maneuvers. When he finds Rayne, Alex and C.Y.T.R.O., he points out how beautiful the day was and asks to Steel come and have some fun. Suddenly, the Elementors attack and Max commands Alex and C.Y.T.R.O. to evacuate the citizens from the beach while Rayne would handle the tsunami. Max saves all surfers and reunites with Alex and C.Y.T.R.O. and the group realize that tsunami was about to devastate Copper Canyon. C.Y.T.R.O. sees a building which they could use as a dam to contain the water. After doing so, the Elementors show up and Max uses his surfboard to fight against them. Eventually, they retreat after Terrorax contacts them confirming that he had managed to steal the Terror Energy Generator.
After the Pantheon was taken down by Max and his team, he activates Turbo Wave Rider Mode to surf on the sea as a commemoration for their victory.
