A surfer arrives on the island, and the castaways try to encourage to head back to Hawaii and rescue them. However, he is more interested in making moves on Ginger and Mary Ann than getting back in a hurry.
Did You Know?
The Professor gives the island's location as "approximately 110 degrees longitude and 10 degrees latitude" but doesn't specify whether he means east or west longitude or north or south latitude. The only two possible locations in the Pacific Ocean are: 10° North and 110° West, with the nearest land 725 miles away on the coast of Mexico, and about 3261 miles to Honolulu; and 10° South and 110° West, with the nearest land about 1,420 miles away on the coast of Isabela Island in the Galapagos, a part of Ecuador, and about 3896 miles to Honolulu.

Gilligan tries to teach himself to surf and practices standing on a board in the lagoon. He ties his feet to the board but then tips over so that he is completely submerged under the surf board. The Skipper comes to rescue Gilligan and wades into the lagoon up to his ankles but his pants are already wet up to the middle of his butt. The Skipper is, however, dry from his waist up while he then uprights the board so that Gilligan can breathe. As the camera cuts from Gilligan back to the Skipper, the Skipper is now completely wet from head to toe although he never submerged below the surface of the water. See more
