If you’re a professional surfer do you tuck your tail between your legs and go back to the drawing board after watching Head Noise? Noa’s new edit is more of a end-all web edit at a short ten minutes; it leaves you yearning for more. Filmed primarily in Australia, Hawaii and Bali, Noa opted for some…

Skating Fallen Spomeniks in the Balkans Sammy Montano in TEMPLE; a conceptual monochrome short

In skateboarding sometime you stumble upon a piece of architecture so strange and eccentric looking that you just need to find a way to skate it. Pierre David and Douglas Guillot, the directors, journeyed through the Balkans with Sammy Montano and did just that on many a fallen monument or ‘Spomeniks‘ as they are more properly…

PLANETARY PUNT 20k Up For Grabs

We have been loud and clear about it from day one here at What Youth. Three to the beach isn’t really our jam. The format of professional surfing castrates progression and awards consistency. Time-limits, jerseys, hassling for priority- the whole scene makes us cringe. The folks at Life At Sea want to change that. They have…

Watch “Exposed” Who the Hell Is Simon Hetrick?
