Synopsis for "The Ghost of Deadman's Breach!"

A surfer kills a rival for a surfing competition and buries his body in the sand. The goal of the competition is to pass through a narrow opening between two rocks, and when the killer gets out there on the waves to do the bit for a tv promoter, he sees the ghost of his victim surfing alongside him. He challenges the ghost because he believes he is the better surfer and can beat him either alive or dead, but he misses the narrow opening and his body is never found.
