Today, surf music is an established music genre with its origins in two styles with similar and distinct characteristics: instrumental surf rock and vocal surf pop.
Both categories or movements - fast guitar playing and highly melodic vocals - mimic and try to ignite a feeling similar to riding a wave or the sound of a crashing wave.
The California sound, often associated with surf music, started taking over the Golden State in the late 1950s, lost its popularity in the mid-1960s before enjoying several comeback waves.
Like a wave set, surf music is destined to stay alive and afloat.
Surf music is more than singing about surfing and playing an instrument like a surfer tames a wave - it's a unique, ever-changing sound with the scent of sea breeze.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
