The Beach Boys “Surfin’ USA”

The Beach Boys classic song, “Surfin’ USA,” mentions some top surfing beaches in San Diego County. Here they are featured in the lyrics in bold.

Watch the Beach Boys perform “Surfin’ USA”

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californ-i-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarachi sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.

You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar
Ventura County line
Santa Cruz and Trestles
Australia's Narrabeen
All over Manhattan
And down Doheny way
Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

We'll all be planning out a route
We're gonna take real soon
We're waxing down our surfboards
We can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on surfari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Haggerty's and Swami's
Pacific Palisades
San Onofre and Sunset
Redondo Beach L.A.
All over La Jolla
At Waimea Bay

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin U.S.A

Yeah, everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin U.S.A.

I took this sunset photograph of Oceanside Beach which isn’t featured in the song.

It doesn’t matter because...

Everybody’s gone surfin’

Surfin’ U.S.A.

Happy Travels!
