if it suits u, fine, listen to it, but i cant watch surf vids with super intense music. I usually just turn the audio off on a surf vid and que my own music. the relaxing stuff's the best. it doesnt evn have to be defined as "surf" or island, but if its relaxing, i usually like it. ie: Band of Horses - No one's gonna love you, the funeral.
The only cool kinda intense song i've seen on a surf vid is the song drop by swizzle tree, on jamie o'brien's freakside trailer.
