Heath brings Matt and Fly easter bunnies that represent them to celebrate Easter. Fly's easter bunny was small but perfectly formed and Matt's had a head full of nuts. As they are exchanging bunnies the guys that stole their boards came by and they told the rest of their teammates. They are all (minus Bec and Anna) in the rec room (playing pool) discussing how to tell Bec that they think her brother stole their boards when Bec comes in. Bec admits that her brother stole their boards and as she leaves Simmo brings some borrowed boards for them to use in the mean time. Fly thanks him and grabs a board. Later Fly and her other teammates confront the surfing gang on the beach and compromise with them
Sharks in the MindEditFly and her other teammates were surfing when Edge thinks he felt a shark.They all swim to shore but Matt stays behind because he didn't believe that there was a shark which annoyed Edge. They argue when Matt finally swims back to shore. The next morning the Solar Blue team tease Edge and Fly asks Bec if she has heard about any shark attacks which Bec hasn't. However dispite this they all convince Deb and Simmo that the water isn't safe for practice that day. They all watch videos of surfers and pinpoint if what a surfer did is their fear. Fly's fear is the same as Anna's which is being held down under water for a long period of time by a wave. Fly, Perri and Anna all go fishing and talk about their families. Edge approaches Fly and her teammates the next morning and shows them a picture Heath has developed which shows a shark near them surfing proving he was right all along.

Out of ControlEdit
The episode begins with a flashback to the whole week. Fly is seen in gym class when Edge and Mattcompete to see who can impress the new girl. Matt asks Fly what her name is and Fly says it's "Lo something". Her name turns out to Laurel. Fly and Heath criticize the prizes Anna has collected for a beginners girls comp.
The prizes are hair clips and bows and other items you can find at a dollar store.

Dreams and DramasEditIt's Fly's 15th birthday!
Fly has a dream where she and Heath are talking with a pool of water between them. Heath wants to be her boyfriend but Fly syas there's a gap (the pool) between boy-friend and boyfriend and there are other dangers as well (there's a shark in the pool to represent the dangers). Heath then appears beside outside of the pool and it's dangers and is about to kiss her when she wakes up.
Fly and Anna are talking as they surf and Fly mentions how excited she is about being 15. She considers 15 to be grownup and can't wait to be not be considered a kid anymore. Her friends back home are throwing her a party but she can't be there. This gives Anna the idea to throw her a big surprise party. As Fly is changing, Heath, Bec and Edge come in. Bec and Edge hold her back as Heath leans in and blindfolds her. Fly is then led onto a bus leaving Anna and Matt in charge of getting the party ready.
Fly gets the blindfold taken off to reveal that Bec, Edge and Heath have taken her to a special surfing spot.
Around 5 the bus comes and Fly decides to take the next bus because she wants to be 'grown up'. Heath gets off on the next stop and walks back. Fly starts yelling at him about not being a baby until he tells her that the next bus is at 7:00 AM. Then it starts raining so they run for cover and Heath finds an empty caravan.
Fly is uncomfortable around Heath because of her dream and because she think that he went back to her because he thought she was a kid. She starts telling Heath that she feels like everyone treats her like a baby or their younger sister. Heath tells her that he doesn't think of her in a sisterly way and then kisses her. As they are sleeping the caravan gets hooked up and they are moving. Fly wakes up Heath but he stuck in his blanket so Fly tries getting the drivers attention. She lights up a candle but drops it setting the curtains of fire. The driver pulls over as Fly puts out the fire and calls the police.The police bring Fly and Heath back home just as Simmo and Deb are getting back. Fly tells the police that the party was her fault as was the breaking and entering the caravan because if she didn't make such a big fuss about growing up none of this would have happened. Charges are not pressed because the owner of the caravan saw them and realized that they weren't criminals and were just kids.
Fly and Heath talk about the kiss later on in the day. Heath asks if he was as good a kisser as she dreamt he would be. Fly says that he was her first kiss and Heath tells her she also kisses well. They agree not to think too much of it until Fly is ready.
Life on the Line Edit
Fly, Bec, Matt, Heath and Anna are all watching the water. They can't go in because it is deemed too dangerous by the lifeguards. Simmo gives them a job to do because they can't surf. He has new boards that need to be painted so the surf academy kids must paint them and then they'll be auctioned off. The surf kids get to keep half of whatever people pay for their boards. Fly and the others watch as Edge runs into the water, ignoring the warning signs, and they all follow his lead. Perri watches them from her lifeguard post and foreshadows that they will all be ill tomorrow because of the waste in the water. The next morning all the surf kids are talking about how brave Perri was to
save a drowning man. Fly mentions that there have been talk of her being nominated for a Bravery award. Bec then runs in and tell them that the auction boards have been stolen so they all run to the garage. It turns out Simmo sent them back because he heard they were all sick because they disobeyed him and went surfing.
Fly and the others are ecstatic when Heath can get their auction boards back, she calls Heath 'Brilliant". AllHeath asks in return is a small commision of what their boards raised. Fly reminds Matt that he's supposed to be on lifegaurd duty because it's Friday.
Fly sees Bec's board and points out that it looks a lot like Edge. Bec claims she didn't mean it to turn out that way and Fly calms her down by telling her that they can always change it tomorrow.However in the morning it turns out that Heath had the boards picked up that morning. Fly tells Bec that they can just switch boards so no one thinks Bec had a crush on Heath (which she still denies) but Bec points out that Fly wrote her dogs name on her board so everyone knows that it's hers.
At the BBQ Fly's board sells for $750. When Edge sees Bec's board he takes credit for it shoking Bec and Fly.
Bad Boy HeathEdit
At the beginning Fly is begging Simmo and the rest of her teammates to wait for a very late Heath not knowing that he is with a new girl names Jane. Simmo has to push her into the van to get going
At the beach Fly asks Matt if he knew where Heath was and finds out that Heath lied to Matt about his whereabouts. At home Fly asks Jilly where Heath is to find out that he's finally made it home and is in his room. She gives him his english book (which he told Matt he was getting to talk to the new girl) and told him she put it in the dryer after he dropped it in the pool. He thanks her and they awkwardly say goodbye.
Deb asks the surf team to judge each other in a surf competition so in order to make sure no one is placed higher they all plane on judging eachother to end with a total of 7. However Heath surfs terribly and Fly scores him a 2 while the others stick to their original plan. So she gets a 0.5 and the rest get only 0's. Fly is also jealous when she sees Heath hanging out with a new girl and he forgets about her and their science project.
Joker's WildEditFly's losing surf contests for being too passive so she is determined to win at a regional girls' competition. In the very beginning when the team is one their way to the competiton, Fly tells Heath that she is very nervousbecause she's never competed against the other girls before. At the competition another competitor tugs on her legs strap making Fly miss a wave. Simmo tells her to be more aggressive and teaches her the next morning on the beach how to do so. The next day she takes Bec's wave making Bec fall over and into the water. Fly however has made it to the finals. Bec is extremely angry and surprised that 'little, innocent' Fly would do that. She and Fly have a silent fight back at their camping grounds. Matt comforts Fly by telling her that she's just proven that she's a threat and can surf as wella they can. They both go to a 'loser' party to talk to Bec but she won't listen. At thecompetition the next day everyone is wishing Fly good luck except for Bec however as Fly is putting on her leg strap Bec approaches her and gives a tip about surfing which is her way of apologizing. In the end Fly wins the whole competition.
