Surf FM broadcasts on 87.6 MHz (FM) using three local coverage FM transmitters located in Seaford (in the City of Frankston), Cranbourne and Berwick (both in the City of Casey). The station is licenced to broadcast by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
These neighbouring cities of Frankston and Casey are located in the outer suburban south-east of Metropolitan Melbourne, Australia's second largest metropolitan area.
The name "Surf FM" was selected to identify as closely as possible with being located in a bayside city. It was also selected to distinguish the brand from other "watermark" names used by various coastal radio stations across Australia like Sea FM, Bay FM, Wave FM and Coast FM.
Casey, the inland city that neighbours with the City of Frankston, is not only Melbourne's fastest growing municipality, but is also the most populous municipality in the Australian state of Victoria (a population of 252,382 at the 2011 census, which compares with Frankston's estimated population of 128,576).

Famous quotes containing the word surf:
“Now small fowls flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf; a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed, and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
