Dick Dale is an American musicianknown as The King of the Surf Guitar. His 1961 song, "Let's Go Trippin'", is considered the first surf rock song in history. A year later, Dale released his debut album, "Surfer's Choice", which led to appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show".


Though surf rock lost popularity to the rise of the British Invasion, Dale continued to perform until he suffered a bout with cancer. Between 1962 and 2001, Dale has released a dozen albums, including "King of the Surf Guitar", "Checkered Flag", "Summer Surf", and "Tribal Thunder". Dale was inducted into the Surfing Walk of Fame in 2011 and the Nashville Musicians Hall of Fame two years earlier.
