Surf, Beach and Shoreline, features pure wave and surf sounds.
It consists of three extended recordings, each taking around a third of the album time. The first is waves breaking on a sandy beach, rolling in from the ocean and hissing up on the golden sand. The second comes from a beach of smooth ocean-worn cobbles. As each wave breaks and recedes, the stones can be heard softly rattling with the retreating waters.
The final recording comes from a late afternoon on a sheltered beach, with small waves, their fury already spent, finally collapsing on smooth sands
