Official Surf Charts

Surf Rock Radio is proud to be a reporting station contributing to The Official Surf Charts.  

All bands are currently in rotation on, the world's number 1 surf music station.

If you would like to have your band featured on the station, or if popular enough place on the charts send us your music as a bandcamp code, or in 128kbps mp3 format with correct metadata via  If you send mp3s without metadata we will not be able to process your request.

We will then set up a band profile on the website which you can share links to in order to promote your music and increase your chart rankings. Every like, share, interaction and request increases your chart ranking.


In 2021 the way in which the #officialsurfcharts are prepared and tabulated will change.  This is because Surf Rock Radio will be just one (but a major one) of many stations that will contribute data to the official surf charts. From May 2021 chart position will be based on a calculation of (1) airplay and (2) listener interaction (eg likes, shares and click through to sales pages) on band profiles.

Band profiles will be centrally held in a database which can be shared across several websites.  We will announce more details of this soon.

    Submit your music

    DripFeed allows bands to easily send music for rotation across the network in just a few clicks, which means our DJs get tracks into rotation almost immediately.  You can register/log in with email, twitter or other social network profiles (don't worry about privacy, we just take your email, name and profile photo) here -  Bands can submit a bandcamp code or upload/drag and drop music via DripBox.  All music must have artist name, album name and track name metadata encoded in mp3 format.  

    If your music is suitable and has correct metadata we will enter it into the Surf Music Registry which enables it for position on the Official Surf Charts.  Plays on spotify or airplay on non-reporting stations do not count towards chart position.
