You go to your bag, go to the TM and HM section, boot up surf, teach it to a water Pokemon, and when you get to a body of water, select that Pokemon in then menu, and in blue letters, it should say surf, press a and say yes. Or, if your Pokemon already knows surf, go up to a body of water, press a on it, it should say "The water is a deep blue... Would you like to surf on it?" then select yes, then it says "(Pokemon) used surf."
