Suntanned surfer Frankie (Frankie Avalon) and his beach baby, Dee Dee (Annette Funicello), are all set for another summer of dancing, music and fun -- until their favorite surfing spot is invaded by a slew of buff bodybuilders, led by trainer Jack Fanny (Don Rickles). When spoiled contessa Julie (Luciana Paluzzi) arrives to meet a muscle man, she spots Frankie and sets her sights on winning him instead, infuriating Dee Dee and leading to an all-out rumble between surfers and iron-pumpers.
