BEACH BOYS superstar Brian Wilson refuses to go surfing despite writing some of his most famous tunes about the water sport.

The legendary musician - who scored hits with songs like SURFIN' USA and SURFIN' SAFARI - is terrified of being killed by a surfboard should he take up the popular hobby.

When asked what he was most afraid of, he replied, "A surfboard coming down on my head."
