cv::xfeatures2d::SURF abstract?

With all default opencv + opencv_contrib build (vs2013), it seems that the mentioned class is abstract.

Test code:

#include <opencv2\core.hpp>
#include <opencv2\features2d.hpp>
#include <opencv2\xfeatures2d\nonfree.hpp>
//the corresponding libraries are linked


int main()
{
    cv::Mat m;
    cv::xfeatures2d::SURF surf;
    return 0;
}

Error:

Error   1   error C2259: 'cv::xfeatures2d::SURF' : cannot instantiate abstract class    c:\documents\visual studio 2013\projects\xfeattest\xfeattest\main.cpp   8   1   xfeatTest

#endif

Any idea what the problem could be?
