While at the beach Ataru discovers Sakura lying in the sand. She tells everyone how much her uncle Cherry used to love the sea, which leads everyone to believe that he is now deceased. No sooner does this come up, than Cherry shoots it down by surfing in to annoy everyone. He explains the good qualities that surfing helps to instill and suggests Ataru and Mendo do it to help improve their concentration. They both try their hardest, but the smallest female distraction sends them both into the drink, helping to show just how similar these two really are.
