This song is totally awesome... Not because it is about surfing so much as it is about fun. Apparently the band really hates to be referred to as a surf band as this is the only song about surfing. They make a point of saying that they think their other songs are much more dark and emo. WHATEVER its all pop stuff any. I mean come on guys you sing songs about summertime, surfing and coney island while whistling, not crying and broken hearts... take the surf band shit as a compliment and call it a day!
