Summer's here and the time is right for a Beach Boys video about their favorite early career subject: Surfing! I've done many videos featuring the music of The Beach Boys, but I've never done a video for any of their surfing songs so I thought it was high time I did. 'Don't Back Down' was the band's final Surf song of their classic era and one their best. I hope you will check it out, and if you do, I hope you will enjoy it.

Very nice! How long does it take to find all the pictures for your videos?

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Thanks! It varies quite a bit depending on the video, but there's always a lot of hours spent combing the internet for just the right image with an acceptable quality. This video was fairly easy- there's lots of photos of surfers out there. I did try to stick to photos from the 60s or earlier as much as I could to try to capture the era. Plus this song is pretty short which cuts down on the time making the video.

Yeah, it definitely has that 60s look (as far as I can judge) and makes it feel authentic imo.
So, lots of work. But I hope the results make it worth it to you. I really enjoy watching the videos. Thanks for that!
