Surf City (song)

“Surf City” is a song written by Brian Wilson and Jan Berry about a fictitious surf spot where there are “two girls for every boy.”[1] It was first recorded and made popular by the American duo Jan and Dean in 1963, and their single became the first surf song to become a national number-one hit.[2]

In 1991, after moving to Huntington Beach, California, Dean Torrence helped convince elected officials that the town be officially nicknamed Surf City, USA.[3] As of 2009, more than 65 businesses in the city included “Surf City” as part of their name.
