Surfing, Skateboarding, Music, Photography, Travel, Culture and general antics of the youth on the run.

What Youth was created from passion.

A deep burning passion that was formed through the many and varied real-life experiences that can only be found by getting out there amongst it. By exploring off the beaten path, by eating things we can’t pronounce, and listening to bands we’ve never heard of. Generally, just living it.

As we see it, without passion we are nothing.

It’s a terrible business plan, truth be told, but at the end of the day it’s yours and it’s ours: we own this thing together. Sometimes we can pay the bills, usually not, but we persevere because it’s who we are.

Besides, what the fuck else are we going to do?

It’s been our goal from day one to simply be an authentic representation of youth culture, whatever and wherever that may be. We are committed to documenting the lifestyles in which we live in the restless and reckless manner that they deserve. In today’s uptight world that stifles so much great creative exploration, What Youth must and will always break free from those limitations and be that true representation of today’s youth culture.

We are you and you are us.

What Youth is much more than just a media voice. What Youth is a living and breathing noisemaker for those looking to wring a little more out of their own life on the run, which may or may not include a surfboard or a skateboard. How you get your kicks is up to you, we’re simply here to document it.

If you’re reading this, thank you for coming along for the ride. We hope we won’t disappoint.
