Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

A surfin' beach in Australia provides the setting for this comedy which chronicles the struggles between youthful surfers and an evil capitalistic developer determined to destroy their turf. Mike McCain is an L.A. developer. His wife and business partner are plotting to double-cross him and take over an Australian beach in order to build a high-rise resort. Mike sends Bobby, his handsome young son, to check out the beach and the situation. Bobby, pretending to be an exchange lifeguard, is soon accepted among the surfers. He finds love with the attractive Julie Thomas, whose father owns the beach. Just as he has decided to join the surfers' cause, Bobby's true identity is discovered and they turn on him. It is his father, who has had a change of heart, who saves the day. He makes an environmentally sound compromise that makes everyone happy (except his wife and business partner, of course).
