More than any other band in history, the Beach Boys have come to symbolise California’s love of Surfing. They are one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful bands of all time, receiver of a Grammy lifetime award in 2001, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame as early as 1988. They are currently staging a 50th anniversary world tour, visiting Hong Kong, and a measuring session with Manu was just what they needed to get them in the mood.
