Surely we all remember the heartwarming Disney classic, "Johnny Tsunami," that graced our screens in 1999. Well, the film's beloved star, Brandon Baker, who played the titular character Johnny Kapahaala, is making waves once again, but this time it's not on the big screen. On a picturesque hike with YouTuber Dimnalanta to an "adventure elopement" ceremony on the shores of Lake Isabel, Baker's fans got a special treat. 

The 38-year-old actor, known for his portrayal of a surfer turned snowboarder in the iconic Disney movie, has been embracing a unique second career path: officiating adventure elopements. For about five years now, Baker has been leading couples in exchanging their vows in the great outdoors. What sets these ceremonies apart is the stunning backdrop, which often involves pristine wilderness, majestic mountain landscapes, and serene lakes, as opposed to traditional indoor settings.

Perhaps what makes these ceremonies even more special is Baker's own connection to "Johnny Tsunami." Many couples, recognizing the actor from his memorable role, are thrilled to have him officiate their special day. Some have even gone so far as to book him specifically because of his ties to the beloved Disney film.

Baker's willingness to rekindle the Johnny Tsunami nostalgia and share in these unforgettable moments with fans speaks to the lasting impact of his work in the film and his ability to continue connecting with audiences, albeit in a wholly different and meaningful way. As he takes on these adventure elopements, it seems that Brandon Baker is still riding the waves of his Disney legacy while creating new, beautiful memories for couples in the great outdoors.
