“Although there are a lot of recordings of surf bands in the world (yay!), there are not a lot of books or films or documentaries about the genre. This is a new one, and a good one. I highly recommend getting & collecting a copy for your surf-abilia files”.
“I dont cuss much ever… but Reverb Junkies is FUCKING AWESOME !!!!!”
“The film “Reverb Junkies” really explains the new breed and the breeds that came before it very succinctly, plus the music is great throughout…”
“I LOVE this film! Finally able to put faces to names I’ve only heard on podcasts…great to see so much live footage, especially dug Norm and The Ghastly Ones…Tiki Tena makes for a great interview…she’s funny, candid, and genuine…just like the film! Great job!”
Timothy C. Sullivan, The Supertones
“Just watched it. This is a must see for every one. It’s really our story. Lots of really great interviews…and lots of great music. I give it five stars “
Big Wave Dave Becker, The Aquamarines
“One thing that people will get from this enlightening new Rock Doc movie is how inclusive and accessible the “family of Surf” is on a worldwide basis. From fan to superstar and friends around the world , there is only one degree of separation to those who have been gripped by the magic gravitational pull of Surf.

Jason Lee, The R.I.P.tides
“This movie is the Bomb man! Amazing job”

It interweaves great live band performances and interviews with musicians and fans who love this instrumental music. In the process, we feel the exuberance and affection that exists in today’s surf music community.”
Trey Rhodes, Surfside IV
“I dug this time-capsule of a film called “Reverb Junkies” and recommend it highly for all surf music nuts like myself. It encapsulates much of the goings-on during the 2010 and 2011 Surf Guitar 101 Conventions and what looks like Tiki Oasis, to boot. The footage is a bit raw around the edges in the same way that the cool underground music documentaries were back in the day…and this style suits the music very well, I think. It’s a joyful, warts-and-all,…
"Reverb Junkies" screening in Mexico coming soon!
