    This kind of surfaces are better with NURBS modeling. Solidworks is not the best software for this type of models, but it can be done using the freeform tool in surfaces tab. There is also a very impressive add-in called powersurfacing which gives Solidworks native abilities to do this kind of modeling. Google it.
