Information on 1980’s reunited Surfaris lineups has currently not surfaced. [1], In the fall of 1962, Southern California high school students Jim Fuller and Pat Connolly were a guitar duo before founding The Surfaris in high school after meeting drummer Ron Wilson at a high school dance. The Surfaris were an American surf rock band formed in Glendora, California in 1962. Original bass player Pat Connelly no longer performs. Lost in the Surf included a cover of "Louie Louie", complete with Scottish bagpipes. Bob Berryhill currently performs worldwide as The Surfaris[1] who started performing in the 1990s. Um etwas Geld für neue Verstärker zu verdienen, beschloss die Band mit Jim Pash eine Single aufzunehmen und selbst zu vertreiben. The original band members were Ron Wilson (drums, vocals), Jim Fuller (lead guitar), Bob Berryhill (rhythm guitar), and Pat Connolly (bass). This album cover was featured by Time Magazine as one of the 35 greatest rock album covers of all time. Das dritte Album der Surfaris, Hit City (1964), sowie alle weiteren Alben wurden mit dem Produzenten Gary Usher unter in Anspruchnahme verschiedener Studiomusiker aufgenommen.

[4] As of 2010[update], Downey's official website continued to make this claim but it has been changed to state he "also played major roles in the production of the hit surf music-era songs "Pipeline" and "Wipeout"."[5]. Mit der British Invasion Mitte der 1960er Jahre änderten die Surfaris ihren Stil und landeten mit der Folk-Rock-Single Karen einen Nr. Nach dem Ende der Surfaris im Jahr 1967 gab es mehrere Revivals mit unterschiedlichen Besetzungen. Saxophone player Jim Pash joined after their "Wipe Out" / "Surfer Joe" recording sessions at Pal Studios. Im Januar 1963 trafen sich die Bandmitglieder (Jim Pash war nicht anwesend, da er seinem Vater bei der Arbeit helfen musste) im Pal Recording Studio in Cucamonga, Kalifornien, um die Idee des Schlagzeugers zu Surfer Joe umzusetzen. [3], Following the death of television personality Morton Downey Jr., news reports and obituaries incorrectly credited him as the composer of "Wipe Out" (as well as the Chantays' "Pipeline"). "Wipe Out" was written and recorded by the quartet later that winter, with the song reaching #2 nationally in 1963 before becoming an international hit.[1]. From there, the band went on to play teen centers and dance halls around Southern California. Point Panic is a renowned surfing venue in Hawaii after which the song was named.
