Bob Berryhill, original guitar player of the Surfaris began his 50 year career by co-writing and recording "Wipe Out," one of the most popular songs produced in a generation.

"Wipe Out," "Surfer Joe" and others captured the sound of the early 1960s. Initially catapulted by the California surf culture, The Surfaris transcended the local scene into international stardom with "Wipe Out" rocketing to #1 and #2 positions on the charts worldwide.

The song has been in numerous commercials, TV shows and movies, including films like “Surf’s Up,” “Meet the Parents,” “Flipper,” and tv reality show, “Wipe Out.” The classic song was just selected as the second most popular summer song of all time by Billboard. Bob continues to lead the band and tell the amazing story behind the music of THE SURFARIS.
