Surf's Up is the seventeenth studio album by American rock band The Beach Boys, released on August 30, 1971 on Brother Records and Reprise. The album was released to more public anticipation than the Beach Boys had previously had for several years. The album's title is taken from the song of the same title written by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks for the abandoned studio album, Smile.

  • 2 years later and I'm still here finding it hard to endure Student Demonstration Time. I blame Mike Love for this!
  • What is wrong with SDT? To me, the whole album is perfect :D
  • Great, great album. So uncharacteristically dark for The Beach Boys, too, but the songwriting is there. As PopKaa said, "Student Demonstration Time" is the only thing holding this back from being perfect.
  • Love this album, so good.
  • This (minus SDT) is perfect
  • Best album the Beach Boys ever released.
  • Really underrated. Not enough listens.
  • Shit, what was I saying, Side 1 is fantastic as well, this whole album is on its way of becoming one of my favs.
  • this album is so close to being perfect, but "student demonstration time" sort of ruins it for me. I'll be enjoying disney girls but in the back of my head I'm really anticipating the brashness of the next track...
  • Side 2 is fantastic. I've been listening to Surf's Up (the song) once a day for the last two weeks and it keeps getting better...
