Dick Dale & the Deltones

Kids called it Surf music I didn't call it that. The kids called me King of the Surf Guitar. I surfed sun up to sun down. I don't claim to be a musician, I didn't go to Julliard. I'm into just chopping, chopping at 60 gauge, 50 gauge strings. That's the sound, the sound of the waves chopping. The Surfing sound is not the reverb. ... So when historians, so called historians, say the reverb's the Surf sound...they don't know what they're talking about. It's the heavy machine gun, staccato sound. The waves.
-- Dick Dale, interviewed by James Porter and Jake Austen in: Roctober #8, 1994
