Description by OLDIES.com:
Gidget (Deborah Walley) is desperate: her parents want her to come with them on vacation to Hawaii during the two weeks when her beloved Jeff, aka "Moondoggie" (James Darren), will be home from college. When he suggests she go, Gidget panics... doesn't he care to be with her? So she sets out for Hawaii in the worst mood. On the plane, she meets the sociable Abby, who advises her to forget about Moondoggie -- advice which Abby regrets when Gidget steals her boyfriend Eddie (Michael Callan), a famous dancer. But when Jeff discovers he misses Gidget and makes the trip to Hawaii... the surfing "girl midget" better watch her step! Newly remastered.
The pert California girl (Walley takes over from Dee) and her family take Hawaii by storm. With her rad surfing technique and perky good looks, Gidget attracts lots of boys--causing problems with her boyfriend. Meanwhile, a jealous rival spreads a vicious rumor.
