Redirected from Original Surfaris). The Original Surfaris were a surf music American band of the early 1960s. In 1960, three young friends, Al Valdez at the piano, Mike Biondo on drums, and Richard Lippy played at the 8th grade graduation dance of St. Mary's Elementary School in Fullerton, California. In the summer of the same year, Valdez, Biondo, guitarist Bobby Esco, and sax player Bob Bernard formed The Vogues and started playing at school assemblies.

The Original Surfaris, in their various incarnations, were one of the most highly regarded and creative surf groups of the 1960s, but also remained at the time one of the most obscure ones. Critics described their music as featuring reverb galore, swaggering sax and a tough surf sound, while their best tracks were praised for their spooky reverb guitar lines and Latin-influenced minor melodies that were hallmarks of much of the best instrumental surf music. Another surf music group from Los Angeles named themselves The Bomboras inspired by the instrumental track. The ’65 Wheels album is kinda mystery, ’cause it sounds kinda dated and maybe only opener Delano Soul Beat is actually by the Original Surfaris. Anyways, here you got almost all the stuff recorded by the band, so check ’em out! Bombora! + Singles.

The Surfaris were an American surf rock band formed in Glendora, California in 1962. They are best known for two songs that hit the national charts in May 1963, which were "Surfer Joe" and "Wipe Out" (respectively on the A side and B side of a 45 RPM single).

The Original Surfaris allegedly never received any money for the tracks they recorded with Tony Hilder, since they had signed all their publishing rights away for one dollar per song. Composers given as listed on respective record. As The Customs: "Hi Hat"/"Steppin' Out"; Regand 1062; 1962.
