Surf is the most powerful Hidden Machine and usually the only HM considered for competitive battling (although Waterfall is a better choice for Pokemon with higher Attack).
Surf can be used to cross water. While surfing, wild Pokemon may appear. From Generation 3 onward it's possible to fish while surfing; previously one could only fish at the water's edge.
