Wipeout

Barnaby's forensic science expertise proves a boon in the apparent surfboard death of a young girl skilled at the sport who is found on the beach. Working for the father of the deceased Donna Reese, Barnaby determines that, though her surfboard had been freshly waxed, no traces of wax were found on her body. Then he learns that Donna never surfed at night at the time of her death, and that puts him on the trail of a murder suspect. He questions two newcomers to the surfing scene, wealthy Anneliesa Chapell (guest star Joanna Miles), her younger brother Taylor and bookish friend, Herbie Webster.
