what youth recommends bonny doon

Listen to Bonny Doon Some mellow jams to finish off this crazy week

Bonny Doon, the unassuming mellow cruisers from Detroit currently taking over my headphones, sounds like the kind of band you’d want to hear while dipping your toes in a sunkissed stream. Their vulnerable yet blithe vocals accompanied by folky arrangements are so very Silver Jews and Bill Callahan, but, you know, more upbeat. Which we…

what youth eats

WHAT YOUTH EATS: WHAT YOU’RE GIVEN Make no substitutions, please.

Is your stomach closed-minded? Are you the picky one? Try to eat or drink what you’re given. And like it. It was like traveling with a 4 year old who only likes mac and cheese. Here we are in the Dominican Republic, first night, ready to find waves in the morning, and our gracious host…

Jordy Smith’s short film “Just Now” The movie poster alone is worth clicking in to see

Owen Wright and the First day of spring And tomorrow we have a new issue for you

Over the weekend, lots of you probably watched Owen Wright win the Quiksilver Pro. A feel good hit for the spring to be sure. There were times over the past year in which I had conversations with people about whether Owen would ever properly surf again, so I must say it was a pleasure to sink…

Watch Northbound Skateboarding on frozen sand in Norway

wha youth recommends twenty waves and a couple more parker coffin

“Twenty Waves (and a Couple More)” Parker Coffin lost a sticker but got more powerful

We really like Parker Coffin. And while he’s been called “Porky” since he was a grom, his turns are now ham-like. And while he no longer has a sticker on the nose of his board, he is ripping, and always looks comfortable in Hawaii. Good songs, rad edit. Worth a watch.
