Storyline

Viva and Taylor Mead are a married couple renting an extra beach-house to a group of surfers sent to them by a Mr. Morrissey of La Jolla Realty. Their daughter, Ingrid Superstar, is pregnant and on the hunt for a husband. Mr. Mead, who is gay, tries to pawn her off to one of the surfers. Meanwhile, Viva wants a divorce from her boy-crazy hubby, who wants a surfer of his own. Tom, a surfer, is inveigled by Mr. Mead to urinate on him. In a close-up, Mr. Mead receives Tom's offering ecstatically, after which he comments, "I'm a real surfer now." Written by Tummy AuGratin

Trivia

Due to a variety of problems (cast and crew were harassed by police during La Jolla CA location filming in May 1968; Andy Warhol was shot by Valerie Solanis less than a month later), this film was (by all reports) never completed and certainly never released commercially. It was screened in public for the first time only in 2012. See more »
