Various Artists: Cowabunga! (1996)

cowabungaBy Scott Goldfine

Since emerging in the early 1960s, surfing has been more than just a hobby, it’s been a way of life. The soundtrack to that lifestyle with its jangling guitar, carefree attitude and quirky humor, is captured on the exhaustive four-CD set “Cowabunga!”

The Beach Boys, the Surfaris and Dick Dale are some of the artists featured on this sterling, fabulously annotated collection, which spans 35 years.
