Surf Movies

The original "Gidget" film, starring Sandra Dee, James Darren, and Cliff Robertson, about a teenage girl who falls in love with surfing against the inclinations of her friends and the reservations of the all-male surf crowd.

Based on the books by Frederick Kohner, in turn, based on the life of his daughter Kathy Kohner.

Though it led to the saturation of the film industry with beach movies in the 1960s, the movie still stands out because of its innocence and beautiful scenery.

The theme song is also catchy.
