To play a teen surfer, Mack in the 2013 Teen Beach Movie, she took the help of a personal trainer. She didn’t know her part before the movie, and couldn’t even do push ups. So, a trainer was badly required for Maia. She did surfing for a month daily. So, it was like she spent most of her time in water for a month regularly.
