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

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

Because 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. What the fuck else are we going to do? Who else is going to have the balls to speak the truth without fear of repercussion, who else goes go left when the sign says right, or turn it up to full blast in the quiet zone?

It’s What Youth and we will not compromise.

It’s been our goal from day one to simply be an authentic source of entertainment which focuses the lens on 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 corporate world that stifles creative exploration, What Youth must and will always break free from those limitations and be that true representation of youth culture.

We are you and you are us.

What Youth is so much more than just another website. What Youth is a living and breathing media noisemaker that creates original programming, a quarterly publication, short and long-form films and kick ass events 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.

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

 —What Youth

WHAT YOUTH began by documenting surfing, but we quickly realized there was a lot of other rad shit happening around us as well. And we welcomed all of it. Music. Skating. Art. Fashion. Travel. Food. Drink. Life.

Now we are an entertainment brand focused on youth on the run. Whatever that may be. We are committed to living and documenting the counter culture’s we live in the authentic, high-quality, restless and reckless manner they deserve.

We are a website, a digital video channel that creates original programming, a quarterly book, film producer, event coordinator and general noise maker for those looking to wring a little more out of their own life on the run, which may or may not include a surfboard.
