AllMusic Review by

While this German dance giant usually strikes out with its dance compilations, this surf retrospective does quite a good job at covering the style on a single disc. Classics like "Hawaii Five-O" by the Ventures, "Surfer Girl" by the Beach Boys, "Tequila" by the Surfaris (actually a live version), "The Cruel Sea" by the Challengers, "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen and "Bustin' Surfboards" by the Tornadoes are all seminal, and the balance of the disc -- songs by Bobby Fuller, Dick Dale, Ritchie Valens, the Surf Raiders, and the Gamblers -- are still solid tracks.
