Gidget Gets Famous

Gidget/Kathy was named "Gidget" because the surfers combined the words "girl" and "midget". They teased her a lot as she came to the beach at Malibu all the time and was determined to learn to ride the waves!!
This photo was taken as Sandra Dee portrayed her in the movie "Gidget" which was the catalyst that made the sport of surfing world famous.
