From the Land of Band Box Records

A 45 RPM Discography of the Surf Tracks

The First Surf Records

So where did it all begin?  Crowley points to two sources:  The Belairs and Dick Dale with his Del-Tones.

The Belairs were from the South Bay area and the Del-Tones from the Orange Coast area.  The competition was fierce between the two bands and their followers, Crowley reports, but in the beginning the two stood alone as proponents of this new sound.  In 1961, the Belairs recorded “Mr. Moto” and the Del-Tones recorded “Let’s Go Trippin'” which are cited as being the first surfing tracks.  The two founding members of the Belairs were Paul Johnson and guitarist Eddie Bertrand.  They would be joined by Richard Delvy on drums, saxophonist Chas Stewart, and keyboard player  Jim Roberts.  Delvy and Johnson were co-composers of “Mr. Moto”.

Dick Dale launched the Del-Tones with fellow artist Nick O’Malley and guitarist Art Munson, basing themselves out of the Rendezvous Ballroom in South Bay.
