I just couldn’t make it past the first jump cut.

Well... yeah this woman is a cringey, and doesn't have the immaculate perception of what Surf music is, and her presentation is dumb, and she's wrong about things... but still, at least she tries to expose a little bit of this 60 years old 'scene' to her current Youtube crowd, whoever they may be...
Easy for us to criticize her, but most music listening internet people don't even know that this thing even exists. Pulp Fiction happened 26 years ago!

Wherever it is generally good or bad to our passion, is up to debate.
Can bad advertising have a good influence still? Professional marketers would say yes. In these days of terrible pop culture, my personal take is that anything that doesn't autotune bad rap lyrics and has real instruments is a plus, however it may be presented. The right people will get it and explore.

Well, at least she didn't call it surf rock...

Now I'm off to find some of that Pet Shop Boys doo-wop surf music.

the way to hell is paved with good intentions ... and ignorance Yes

This person likes the same stuff as us; why not try and include them in our community?

At 4'30"..... does she say "Pet Shop Boys"???!!!

Yes! This person is obviously new to the genre but really likes it and is exposing it to her peer group. Why trash it? This makes me bummed out. She took the time to CREATE A THING. That's something these days.

Right...I had to rewind that par a couple of times. "Did she actually say?..." But aside from that (surely she just misspoke!) and some chronological errors, I actually thought she did good for a non-combatant. She is turning people on to the right stuff. The fact that she discovered the Surfrajettes from their Brittany Spears cover isn't lost on me, nor some others as well as there was mention of that around here some time ago I think. Not a bad way to get over?

Agree

Her heart is in the right place, so I'll cut her some slack. I love Link Wray, surf or no surf.

Although I dislike the dissemination of totally erroneous information.

Effort and intentions are great for crayon mothers day cards but in the realm of informational videos made available worldwide, accuracy does matter. Especially when dealing with historical material.

The Pet Shop Boys' version of Misirlou came before Link Wray's, not the other way around.

The strong affectation coupled with factual inaccuracies definitely warrants some ribbing, if not straight up admonishment. I can think of a pretty good recent example of this right here at home...

By the way, there isn't actually a surf band called the Avalanches, is there? If there is, gimme!

HA! Thanks, Ivan. I guess that's an official "not really..."

Thirty seconds into the first song and I can tell it's Jerry Cole on lead, right?

Because you are not taking jokes seriously enough.

Sorry, but as self proclaimed “international ambassador of surf music“, “co-organizer of the most important, prestigious and awaited surf music event in then world”, “One of the most respected artists in modern surf music” (source) you don’t get a pass.

You are showing up here as the international jack ass of surf by continuing to poke fun at people you feel are beneath you and not worthy of your club.

Adding a video by a forum member here who actually played this stuff in the early 60’s (Don aka Duceditor here) as an implied ‘kinda like this guy who is equally wrong and a horror too’ just cements the deal.

Don’t be a dick.

El Mirage @ ReverbNation

1.1k subscribers and she focused on instrumental artists when she talked about surf. It's not a clean victory, but I call it a win.

And back to this question

Well, let‘s leave it at this:
i see things differently.
Reading a discussion like this doesn‘t increase my fun factor
of listening, playing and exploring surf and related styles.
I‘d appreciate a less agressive attitude of everybody..
And now i‘ll play guitar... today‘s project: a Cure song in jazz chord melody style with a surf guitar sound...sounds like fun to me ...

Although her video is over the top, and certainly not my style, I applaud her for promoting surf. She's enthusiastic about surf. I see that as a good thing. She's obviously a newbie, and I'm inclined to cut her a lot of slack. I hate the idea of us being a bunch of elitists who make fun of those who don't know the secret handshake. My two cents...
