    Going for the One by Yes always had a bit of a surf vibe to me with the guitar riff.

    Excuse the dead thread resurrection, but check the first link in my signature. Kinda prog., kinda surf...that's mostly what we do.

    Otherwise, try Secret Chiefs 3

    I can't believe this thread never even used the obvious term: Prog Surf.

    Hell yeah Man or Astroman! Saw them last year, they opened for the Dead Milkmen. You might be able to also consider Los Straightjackets progressive surf too. This was progressive as it gets for the time

    Check out Satins Pilgrims. Don't let the name scare you. No devil stuff or religion involved. Just raw surf punk. They could have gone somewhere if they had a civilized name.
