Before Wet Side Story, In the real world, a young surfer named Paris fell in love with a biker named Beckett. They got married but at the wedding, Paris was clutching her stomach softly with embarrassment. It turns out she was pregnant before the wedding with a boy. She later went into labor with bad contractions at the hospital. Then Paris delivered a baby boy she named Tanner Ramon Morgan and brought him home from the hospital. Paris soon died when Tanner was 10 and his twin brother and sister Dylan and Janelle were infants. When Tanner grew up, he followed in his mother's footsteps and became a surfer after she died. In Wet Side Story, Tanner is the leader of the Surfers. His rivals, along with the rest of the surfers, are the Bikers. Both groups manage to work together in the end, though.
When Mack is transported into Wet Side Story, she falls into Tanner's arms instead of Lela. Tanner falls in love with Mack rather than Lela. Towards the end of the movie, Tanner ends up finding out that Lela is a better match for him rather than Mack. Tanner is seen in many songs and dance scenes along with the other Surfers and Bikers.

In the end, Tanner, along with other bikers/surfers including Butchy and Struts, get stuck in the real world that Brady and Mack went back to.
