Rewind Me: The Show With Taylor Steele

Video: What Youth

Simply put: Taylor Steele’s films inspired and shaped over a decade of our lives. From Momentum on, his films got us surfing, throwing shoes, hanging with our friends, experiencing surfing as it was meant to be experienced. It was all we needed. After years of beautiful cinematography dominating surf films, Taylor simplified the formula and we rocked out. Punk rock music. Parts. Our favorite surfers all hanging out. The Momentum Generation was the thing and we were hooked. It had lovers and haters, but it was definitive. And it was ours.

The formula at first was simple: good surfing, good music, young progressive surfers. From then, it evolved into a skits, scripts, production and fame. And to us, we recognized The Show, Taylor’s fifth full-length film as the fulcrum of that moment. Sandwiched between Good Times and Loose Change, The Show was both the end of the “punk rock” moment in surfing and the beginning of the Momentum Generation’s big debut.

We talked with Taylor specifically about The Show today and we’ll be showing it in it’s entirety tomorrow and all weekend.
