Due to an accident while swimming in the sea, Francis meets the surfer Moondoggy. She's fascinated with his sport and starts to hang out with his clique. Although they make fun of her at first, they teach her to surf. Soon, she's accepted and given the nickname "Gidget." But it's hard work to become more than a friend to Moondoggy.
