After getting in trouble one too many times, Tyler's stepfather punishes him by sending him to the Malibu Junior Rescue Program where he meets a ragtag group of people from the Valley. Together, the group sets to prove that they deserve to participate in the program along with all the other people from Malibu. When the program director, Garvin Cross, reveals that he only let Tyler and the rest of the Flounders into the program so that they would fail and he wouldn't have to take people from the Valley anymore, Tyler and the Flounders come together as a team to win a big lifeguard competition and earn their own tower for the summer.
