5.0 out of 5 stars Beach Boys Rock!!!
I have never seen this concert by the Beach Boys and I am a big fan. It starts out as a documentary on surfing, going into the whole history of the wave-riders, and it's got some great 1960's surf footage. It's really cool! And the Beach Boys are the soundtrack- how perfect is that? But the end of the DVD is where it's at... an entire lost concert by the beach Boys...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Much for Beach Boys' Fans
Contrary to an ealier reviewer's claim that an "entire concert" is included at the end, only six songs are shown in the epilogue--two from television appearances and four from the "Lost Concert" DVD, so nothing new or special here.

Contrary to an ealier reviewer's claim that an "entire concert" is included at the end, only six songs are shown in the epilogue--two from television appearances and four from the "Lost Concert" DVD, so nothing new or special here. The main part of "Surfin' USA" is footage from bad beach movies and other non-essential cultural tidbits that have little to do with the real history of surfing, and in fact the soundtrack includes very little Beach Boys music. I think somebody is just trying to make some money off of some archival video that was never purposeful in the first place. This piece of video schlock offers nothing for true fans of either surfing or the music of the Beach Boys.

I should know, I'm Fortunato Plethora.

1.0 out of 5 stars California Dreamin, April 3 2004

This review is from: Surfing USA: Featuring the Hit (DVD)
I love the beach boys and lived through the sixties. This CD does credit to neither. To much talkin not enough rockin. The sound left a lot to be desired. All-in-all save your money. The Beach Boys are American icons; they deserve better.
