Surfin' on a Backbeat is the third studio album by German pop singer Sasha, released by Warner Music on October 29, 2001 (see 2001 in music) in German-speaking Europe.

Taking Sasha's work further into rock pop, Surfin' on a Backbeat reached the top ten of the albums charts in Germany,[1] but charted significantly lower than its predecessors.[2] It was however, certified gold by the German leg of the IFPI for more than 200,000 sold copies.[2] The album and its re-release produced four singles, including leading single "Here She Comes Again" and "This Is My Time," the 2002 FIFA World Cup television hymn.[2] A reissue of the album was released on July 22, 2002 (see 2002 in music), containing two previously unreleased tracks.
