Surfonic Water Revival is the title of a various artists compilation album which was recorded and released in 1998 by KMG Records. The album pays tribute to the pioneers of Surf music like Brian Wilson, Jan and Dean, the Belairs, the Hondells, the Surfaris, the Ventures, Beach Boys, Dick Dale and many others.
The album was produced by Terry Scott Taylor who also wrote the majority of the songs which were all recorded exclusively for this album. Nearly every track on the album teams up multiple artists or bands who then join forces to deliver their best tribute to the genre. In some cases, the artists attempt to mix other styles of music with surf music, such as The Insyderz on "A Good Sailor Knows," where the artists attempt to blend their own style of Ska music with Surf.
In 1999 the album was nominated for the Dove Award in the "Special Event Album of the Year" category.
The album was dedicated to Carl Wilson.
