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.

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

We're really at the ocean, Where the surfers are, We know we're on the right track, When we get to where the surfers are, We're never ever comin' back, Oh, no, we're never comin' back, Never comin' back, Never coming' back again...
