Well, I don't know what games you are referring plus there are lots of ways to go too but I would say that these are some good choices:

Floatzel
http://pokemondb.net/pokedex/floatzel
A common water type Pokemon.
Decent stats. As for moveset I would give this:

Ice Fang
Surf (since you want surf)
Crunch
Brick Break/Aqua Jet

Ludicolo
Not a bad typing. Not to bad in stats.
As for moveset:

Surf
Energy Ball
Zen Headbutt
Ice Punch

Whiscash
One of my favourite water types.
Nice typing, nice stats and deep movepool.
Moveset:

Surf
Zen Headbutt
Fissure/Earthquake
Icy Wind/Ice Beam/Aqua Tail/Dragon Dance

Slowbro
Not a bad typing.
Moveset:

Surf
Psychic
Slack Off
Zen Headbutt

Lanturn
Unique typing.
Nice movepool.
Moveset:

Surf
Signal Beam
Discharge
Thunder Wave/Confuse Ray

Kingdra
Unique typing (wow this answer is getting really long, don't worry it will end soon)
Moveset:

Surf
Dragon Dance
Dragon Pulse
Yawn/Hydro Pump/Brine

Cloyster
High defence
Moveset:

Surf
Icicle Spear
Ice Beam
Signal Beam

Tentacruel
Unique typing (almost done)
Good stats
Moveset:

Surf
Poison Jab
Water Pulse
Wring Out

Gyarados
I don't recommend Gyarados for Surf due to his horrible Sp.Atk
but I will give you a moveset without Surf
Moveset:

Ice Fang
Crunch/Bite
Aqua Tail
Thrash

Omastar
Good defense and Sp.Atk
Moveset:

Surf
Ancient Power/Rock Blast
Brine
Bite

Lapras
Another Ice/Water type Pokemon
Nice stats
Moveset:

Surf
Ice Beam
Ice Shard/Body Slam
Confuse Ray/Brine

Walrein
Yet again another Ice type
Moveset:

Surf
Blizzard
Hail/Crunch/Aurora Beam
Ice Fang/Ice Beam

Carracosta
High Defense, Now I don't recommend Surf on him but since you want a water type quickly go with Carracosta.
Moveset:

Surf
Rock Slide
Shell Smash
Crunch

Sorry for the really long answer. Anyway overall I would go with either: Ludicolo, Slowbro or Whiscash, but that's my opinion.But since you just want a water type to use surf go with Carracosta since you don't have to do much to get it. In Relic Castle there is a backpacker that gives you a Cover Fossil or a Plume Fossil. Take the Cover Fossil, that gives you Tirtouga which evolves into Carracosta. Their unique typing gives them STAB over their moves and certain defenses. It's you choice to choose any of the Pokemon that I listed.
But as I said I think those are the best of them, another one you may want from the one that I listed is Lanturn.
Hope I helped!

There is a backpacker in the relic castle who will give you a cover fossil or a plume fossil. The cover fossil gives you carracosta when revived at the nacrene city gym, and carracosta is a pretty good water type in my opinion. Hope I helped.

I wouldve done that, but silly me got archen!
And Carracosta isn't the 'best' either, there are others who give him competition. But he does make an OK HM Slave.
