"How would you like to stand like a God before the crest of a monster billow, always rushing to the bottom of a hill and never reaching its base, and to come rushing in for a half mile at express speed, in graceful attitude, until you reach the beach and step easily from the wave?" - Duke Kahanamoku


In the wash of the explosive cultural movements of the 1960s, surf rock came of age quickly, peaked early and then nearly disappeared, much like the waves the music mimicked. Raunchy sax melodies and solos, sharp, angular guitar lines and rolling drum beats are the immediately recognizable elements. Get a single coil pickup, a clean guitar and play as fast as you can.

I hope you play this music as it was intended - loud, prominent and as a driving force in your life, if not for the rest of your week, than at the very least for the next hour.
