Jeff, I am trying to arrange some time to get down there from Vancouver for the convention date and go to the Fender Visitor Center, too. Any idea when tickets will go on sale for SG101 and is there a price set yet?

Regardless of me going, I am grateful that the surf music scene benefits for all that you do. Hopefully, I can get the chance to shake your hand and thank you face-to-face.

Jeff - congratulations on a killer line-up! I had to miss last year but will be back this year. I just booked a room at Howard Johnson Torrance. The reviews were better than the Super 8 for not much more money.

I can't wait!

Cool, can't wait to see you James!

No pre sale tickets
40 dollars at the Door.

Fender is back again this year as a Sponsor! They will be donating a guitar to raffle off at the 2016 Surf Guitar 101 convention !!!

Jeff I went last year and it was great. But I was hoping to find the great music available somewhere. It would be so amazing to hear the first time I heard Moonbase, (I was hooked instantly). And the set by the Eliminators was timeless, the Tomorrowmen, wow and the energy of the Volcanics, it was killer. Any tips??? Gary

There are videos on YouTube of each convention

Gary, one of the best ways to support and encourage the global Surf instrumental community is to purchase the officially released product of the bands. I cannot express how much each and every CD, LP, 7", T-Shirt, pin, etc. help bands function.

Try the bands' direct websites, Facebook pages or Bandcamp sites to purchase merchandise, or, go through a trusted, reputable online store such as Surfer Joe or Double Crown Records. I guarantee that those special moments you experienced at the convention will be conjured again through the official releases that the bands spent a great deal of time and money to make available.

Insect Surfers
The Tikiyaki Orchestra
Tikiyaki 5-0
The Scimitars
Surfer Joe
Fiberglass Jungle - Surf Radio

First timer. Stoked beyond measure! This is gonna be epic!

Looks like a great lineup and an awesome time. I'm stoked! Thanks to Jeff for making this happen.

Will, in the past the fender tour was on Friday,
But now Individuals can go when they can.
Look at Fender Visitors Center web site for info and booking.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Big thanks to Jeff for the helpful info and JonPaul for the hotel/motel recommendations!
