Notes

The box has gloss spots on it to make the surfboard cover look like it has been waxed.
Includes a 64-page booklet all about the history of surfing and the bands contained in the compilation.

Last track on all four CDs has approximately two minutes of ambient surf sounds (waves crashing, etc.) added after music ends.
