While completing the cycling scenes, Eddie and Shawn often fell off their bikes and injured themselves. There were several wounds on their legs, hips, and thigh areas.
The actors revealed, “Sometimes our bandaging fell off as soon as we entered the water, but we didn’t want to immediately head back onshore to get it redone, so we just had to deal with it. Since it was salt water, it felt really bad when it touched our wounds.” The crew praised Eddie and Shawn for their courageousness and hard-working spirit.
