A group of three brawny surfers notice his failing attempts and goes over to mock him. Their leader, introduced as Hurl Hurlbutt makes fun of Pops’s big head, claiming he has the worst body for surfing ever. Pops defends himself, saying that anyone can surf according to Peachy, but Hurl brushes off the notion stating that Peachy was dead.
They are interrupted by a large swell rising in the water. Hurl and his associates jump at the opportunity while Pops, determined to prove himself as a competent surfer follows them in. Unfortunately the wave crashes him into the three surfers and wipes them all out. Now with a vengeful mob of surfers after him, Pops is chased off the beach and makes a narrow escape on Carmenita.
