I am new to the swaylocking community, and was wondering If anyone could give me some input. Im writing a University Dissertation on Surf Music, not a paid project or anything. Basically a lot of people say surf music only was big between 1961-66 but my project is basically going to express how surf music has been here all along since the ancient hawaiians - in terms of music thats influenced by surfing or the surf, as oppose to the music that appropriates Surfing (Beach Boys) for capitalist gain. I was wondering if Anyone had any input about what they consider to be surf music from 66 all the way through to now, even just as a starting point for research. Im basically looking for music that was influenced by surf culture, music that was sonic representation of surfing like Dick Dale, but kind of in a different period. ALso any good surf clips you anyone can recommend through the 60s, 70s, and 80s that i can look at the tunes from.
Thanks in advance everyone,
