Gidget Comes to Hawaii

Yes, the real "Gidget" is in Hawaii. Kathy Kohner was the original GIRL surfer! Her dad was a screenwriter in Hollywood and published a "fictional" story about a teenager who caught waves in Malibu, California, in the late 50's. Gidget was here because she just reissued her dad's publicaton and is traveling the world telling her story and selling her book. I loved being there when she enthusiastically retold her story of learning to ride a board in an all boy surfing world.
Gidget has a great sense of humor and made me laugh a lot.
Read her book---find it on
