Everything’s Wrong but in the Right Place A What Youth Vid starring Soli Bailey, Ian Crane, Kai Hing, Luke Hynd, Colin Moran and Zak Condon Presented by O’neill

In most of our minds it exists as a paradise. A place of cerulean blues and warm yellows and ruler edged waves. Perfect lines and pretty reefs with pretty fish. But sometimes it’s darker than that. Moodier. Twisted. A little creepy. And of all the pretty times we’ve had, it might be these darker, muggier trips that drives us to continuously go back. Define your own paradise. And ours is a little moodier than you’d think.

Last month we boarded a sailboat called the Bintang in the pungent marina of Padang and sailed for the Mentawais with Soli Bailey, Ian Crane, Colin Moran, Kai Hing, Luke Hynd and Zak Condon. A six-pack of fresh faces. We returned bloody, scarred, filthy and terribly barreled. Here’s a short vid we made that we think pretty much sums all that up.

Look for more from these guys and imagery in the upcoming What Youth Issue 15. Out this August.
