After being prodded by Dennis to write a song about the local water-sports craze, Brian Wilson and Mike Love created their first single for the band Surfin.
During the Labor Day weekend in 1961, Wilson took advantage of the time. His parents were in Mexico City for few days, and the boys used the emergency money, his parents had left to rent an amplifier, a stand-up for bass for Jardine to play, and a microphone.
After the boys practiced for two days in the Wilsons’ music room, his parents returned home from Mexico. Wilson’s father was impressed and was made the group’s manager, and the band rolled on serious rehearsals for a proper studio session.
Their song, Surfin recorded by Hite and Dorinda Morgan and was released on the small Candix Records label. Surfin became a top hit song in LA and peaked #75 on the national Billboard sales charts.
