Though it will be a little hard to find, there isn't a better book about surfacing in SW than

SolidWorks Surfacing and Complex Shape Modeling Bible

Also, and a lot of people really don't value it enough, but rolling through the history of a model downloaded from any number of websites with SW models is just as good as any tutorial.

Also, and you may not be into cars, but making this model is ALL about surfacing.

Ironically the author hates solidworks so much these days he's ditched it all together and is has taken up blogging about how great solidedge is instead! But yea, solid info in that book if you can get a hold of a copy. It's a pity because when his blog was still about SW he ran surfacing competitions and the like, much like core77 does.

It's not that Matt hates SW as a platform as much as it's about the discourse between Matt and SW HQ and the general direction of things. As software goes the paradigm that SE offers is vastly different that SW when it comes to modeling "parametrics". I would say that SE has better surfacing tools that SW currently, but that may change considering that no new surfacing tools have been added in quite sometime in SW and with Matt onboard with SE they'll only get better surfacing specific features.

Thanks for the great tutorials, Andrew.

This is definitely the level that I want to be at. I have watched the first 10 videos on youtube, and because I was taught Alias formally at college, I can understand most the principles. However, I need some surfacing tutorials to help bridge the gap as I am not experienced enough with SW surfacing. Also, I am always wondering which keys you are pressing to get the fast workflow. For example, BlenderCookie have all the keystrokes displayed in some of their tutorials and it helps massively to get highly efficient... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfAYtY4KsF4

Could anyone recommend some other SW surfacing tutorials? I have learned the basics already so I am probably looking for intermediate level .
