The favorite pastime of Oceancrest College students, aside from surfing, is going to the Silver Palms club where comedian Woody Woodbury performs. Wealthy playboy "Ding" Pruitt falls in love with Sandy Palmer, Woodbury's niece; but the romance disturbs Edgar Cronin, Ding's grandfather, who tries to have the club closed. Sociology professor Dr. Pauline Thayer also considers the Silver Palms scandalous and would like to see it made off limits to students. She changes her mind, however, after she falls in love with Woodbury. When Ding announces his intention to marry Sandy, Cronin arranges for the club to be raided by the police, but he drops the charges when he is revealed to be an ex-bootlegger; he then gives his approval to both the Silver Palms and Sandy.
