According to Zombie Surf Camp, the band was established in 2005, “after a chemical waste spill occurred off the beaches of San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant. A few unsuspecting surfers were out enjoying some of the best waves of the year. Unbeknownst to them, it wasn't just ocean water they were surfing in that day. No one had suspected a thing as the spill was colorless and odorless.
“Within days, the surfers realized they were changing. First they lost their tans, then the pigment in their eyes, and shortly thereafter...they lost their heartbeats and were left to walk the Earth as the surfing dead.”
In 2010, the band released Reefbiter.
