Band Name Origins:

  • It has to do with surfing; they switch their feet on the surfboard. Submitted by: Cate
  • Jon Foreman himself said, "Switchfoot is a surfing term. We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music." Submitted by: Amanda
