Episode Information[]

Summer has love problems when Slade returns from a world surfing tour to discover Matt and Summer dating, and C.J. is pursued by a bungee-jumping balloonist. Meanwhile, Garner patrols the beach on horseback.


  • Former Baywatch regular Kelly Slater (Slade) returns to guest star in this episode.
  • The show's co-creators Douglas Schwartz and Michael Berk's mothers, Mimi Schwartz and Rose Berk appeared in the episode as the two women Mimi and Rose who were sitting down on the bench.
  • One of the few Season 4 episodes where C.J. and Summer both appear together. For whatever reason, especially in the last half of the season, there were either Summer or C.J. episodes. If one had a story centred on them, the other wouldn't be in the episode at all.
