There are few types of music that are as evocative as surf for me. There are so many scenes and feelings that are conjured up by the songs I’ve included here, which are either explicitly surf or inspired by the genre. I’ve developed a strong interest in stand up paddle boarding, which is akin to surfing, and this is the music I imagine as the soundtrack of standing on the water.
I’ve included songs by Legato Vipers, The Mermen, Daikaiju, Nathaniel Johnstone And The Brazilian Surf Mafia, Waka Jawaka, The Presidents of the United States of America, Insect Surfers, Santos Morcegos!!!, La Luz, Marie-Claire et les Hula-Hoops, Moon Tides and Triptides in this mix.
