Tom surfs a large wave but he's frightened when spots the interrupting shark below him, laughing demonically. Tom pulls himself up to the top of the wave until he's sucked beneath the water and soon encounters the shark again. Tom turns his arms such that he rows with them and speeds away from the shark, launching a foot into the air. He taunts the shark again but scrapes the sand and runs into a rock. As a mound of sand covers him, the surfboard is up against the rock, giving the mound appearance of the grave. Jerry walks onto the "grave" and drops a flower onto it. He takes off his hat as a salute but grabbed by Tom, who spits out the flower. The sand comes off in Tom's head and it's shown a red starfish was grabbed a hold of it.

As the starfish enlarges one of his legs over Tom's nose, they both of them do an impression of Jimmy Durante. After that, Tom tries to get the starfish off of his head by tugging him off, but doesn't succeed, much to Jerry's amusement. Tom eventually manages to get the starfish off to his head, but finds him getting stuck on his hands. Then he gets him off by pushing it with his foot and when he gets him off, he thinks he succeeds... until he starts walking and realizes he's now stuck on his foot. After realizing this, he pulls him off with his hands, but ends up getting him stuck on his head again. After that, Jerry whispers a plan in Tom's ear. As the starfish protests, Tom carries it out anyway: Running the headfirst into a big rock. The starfish is still here, and just as Tom cries and points to the rock and his head, a bump forms, causing the impact to push the starfish off.

Tom takes one last look at the starfish and leaps excitedly, until he joy doesn't last for too long when he sees the Jerry was taken his surfboard and becomes annoyed. As Jerry does a sombrero dance with the hat, puts the hat back on and poses, Tom takes the surfboard and waves at the mouse. Jerry flies through the air and lands into a coconut tree. Jerry gets his head lodged in a coconut and acts like a monkey before stumbles around the beach. Tom paddles away, but soon encounters the shark yet again, jumping off his surfboard and swimming to shore, causing the board to fly into the shark's mouth. As Tom laughs himself silly, the shark expels the board and ends up throwing it into Tom's mouth when he's never laughing. The shark laughs hysterically as Tom's swallowed with his surfboard and departs. Then Tom is used as a surfboard by Jerry, as he shrugs and decides to enjoy surfing.
