surf music facts

Post by koimaster » July 26th 2021, 9:10am

Hawaii might be the spiritual home of surfing, but it was in Southern California that the sound of the surf first echoed before spreading across the world.

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.

Discover some of the most interesting and surprising facts about surf music and the evolution of the California sound:

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Let us not forget for those of us, myself included who surfed and rode a skateboard. I still have a skateboard I made in shop class and my first skateboard, a roller derby as well as a long board. Now I surf the mountain on snowboards.
