A young girl travels to California with a couple of friends in order to visit her brother, whom she hasn't seen for some time. After they arrive it doesn't take long for them to get into the swing of things and also to attract the attention of the local police sergeant, who is strictly anti-surfing. Pretty soon there is a falling out between the local surfers and it becomes clear that her brothers reputation is far greater than reality and his lifestyle is not all it appears to be. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

As the film opens, the three female leads are driving on a highway in a 1964 Dodge convertible, towing a travel trailer, and there are no other vehicles in front of or behind them. In the next shot, taken from the next lane and in front of the Dodge, there is an early 1960s Studebaker Hawk two-door following behind them. In the following shot, taken from behind the Dodge, the Studebaker has disappeared and there are no other cars following them. See more »

Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun...
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bunch of us just watched this film together and it was just a lot of fun, fun, fun! I mean, c'mon, you can't take these surf movies seriously. It's not going to win any awards or anything like that, but sometimes it's just enjoyable to watch old surf films because of the rock stars and the surf music from the 60's.

Two of my favorite songs in this film were performed by The Routers and The Marketts, two of the groups which were formed by Michael Z. Gordon. The Routers played, "Crack Up" and "Let's Go!". Their LP is still in my music collection today. I also like the Astronauts who I think are still performing.

You can't watch this film for it's acting, photography or production value. But if you want to watch it as a flashback to the early surfing days, then this is a perfect film for you to watch cuz it's a fun, fun, fun film to watch!
