Here’s Cowabunga Beaver hanging ten while laying down a jam during International Surf Music Month. If the swells pick up, he’s thinking of trippin down to Milwaukee this afternoon, which has become a surfing hotspot, dude!
One of the fathers of Surf Music was Dick Dale, who was musically influenced by his Lebanese uncle. If you listen for it, you will pick out an unmistakable Arabic theme in “Misirlou,” which was recently repopularized in the “Pulp Fiction” movie.
For our nostalgic friends, the Beav includes “Wipeout” and a Beach Boys tune . . .
