They called her Gidget -- as in girl midget. Like Barbie, the name found its way into our vocabulary. And, in 1959, "Gidget" the movie set off a tsunami of surf-themed films with wide beaches and thin plots. Well, she's back. Berkley Books has reissued "Gidget" the novel, 44 years after it first inspired the movie. And, if you happened to have hit the beach at Malibu on a Monday, you might have run into Gidget herself sizing up the surf. "For a long time I retreated and didn't talk about this," says the real Gidget, Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, an animated 60-year-old part-time restaurant hostess who grew up in Brentwood and now lives in Pacific Palisades, a beach community on the west side of Los Angeles with her husband of 36 years.

Rose Bowl 5 p.m. [chs. 2, 7] How fitting is it that Joe Paterno (right) is coaching in a bowl known as the Granddaddy of Them All? But then again, there is no game known as the Great-Granddaddy of Them All. On the other sideline, Penn State's opponent, Southern California, is coached by a guy who looks as if he once was an extra in Gidget.

At Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach, Fla., amid the buzz from fans waiting for the "real Gidget" to autograph their books, a girl of about 6 has a question. She faces the honey-haired woman sitting on the stage and asks, "Are you a surfer?" Kathy Kohner Zuckerman stops signing in mid-sentence and peers at the girl through thick-framed glasses. "She asked if I'm a surfer," Zuckerman repeats loudly. Then she smiles at the child and answers, "I am the legend. I was the first girl surfer."

SAN ONOFRE STATE BEACH, Calif. -- Long ago -- before the Beach Boys and Gidget, before fiberglass and surfwear, before "dudes" and even "daddy-o's" -- a handful of men carried the first long boards into the gentle swells of the Pacific Ocean here to ride the waves.The times were simpler then, and so was surfing, freshly imported from Hawaii and yet to be popularized, professionalized and accessorized. In the 1930s, it was just the ocean, a wooden board and a man -- somebody like Lorrin "Whitey" Harrison or Leroy "Granny" Grannis.

Yo Gidget -- grab Moondoogie and your surfboard and head out to the beach. This summer's swimwear trends include two-piece suits with halter tops and boy shorts as well as the classic string bikini. Fresh, bright colors such as pink and green, tropical prints and polka dots are all hot, too. And details such as keyholes and rhinestones dress up a plain one-piece with style. Here are some of our top swimsuit and cover-up picks for the beach: Accessorinis Dress up that classic string bikini with decorative front and side ties, a ruffled skirt and a Carmen Miranda-inspired tropical fruit print.

Think of it as "The Three Faces of Gidget" -- in drag.In one of the most glacial winters in Baltimore history, director Terry J. Long has transformed the tiny Spotlighters Theatre into a slice of sun-drenched Malibu Beach, circa 1960 -- the setting for Charles Busch's corny, campy, comic "Psycho Beach Party."In Sixties lingo, it's a groovy way to come in out of the cold -- unless, of course, drag comedies about psycho teen-agers aren't your bag, in which case, you are forewarned and should stay home.

What with Nintendo and other electronic entertainments, the age of the board game is almost at an end. Sure, there are still some Monopoly zealots out there and some 5-year-olds moving their way around Candyland, but you won't find a board game based on "Beverly Hills, 90210" or "Roseanne."Not like the good old days.By the good old days I mean the '50s and '60s when, for one thing, there was a board game based on almost every successful television show.For instance, there was the "Leave It to Beaver" Money Maker Game (share Beaver's ingenious and often disastrous attempts at earning money)
