Christiania is in Copenhagen. It is a largely self governed neighborhood of CPH, and hidden inside is a very fun bowl to skate. We joined up with Eric Dressen, the CPH Pro dudes and Monster to throw an event and bowl jam at the Wonderland Skate Bowl. And when you throw a party in a self governing zone of CPH, this is what it looks like. There are watermelon hash pipes. Jake Anderson commentary. Peter Ramondetta got arrested for a bit. And some really good skating.
Eric Dressen’s Salad Bowl in Christiania We threw a party where there aren’t any rules. This is that.
Day Off With Colin Moran When your job is surfing whats a day off look like
The Final surf for Slow Dance Craig Anderson let us come along on the final day of filming for Slow Dance
It’s pretty hard to find moments like this. The last day of school maybe? First day of a long vacation? Who knows, gotta feel good though. After a long year of filming and working on his new film, Craig Anderson finally made it to the last day of filming for Slow Dance, which comes out…

Wright Brothers from Other Mothers Ozzie and Owen Wright tagging boards and lefts in Bali
We had a dream too. It was to bring together two of our favorite surfers — Ozzie Wright, the trippy gothic pirate hippie goon of doom who’s generally wandering the globe sliding across rocks and airing off anything he can find and Owen Wright, the ASP World Title contender, and freesurfing wizard with an artistic…
Wake Up, It’s Over A day in Japan worth pinching yourself over
An original What Youth short film featuring Yadin Nicol, Conner Coffin, Dane Reynolds and Kolohe Andino dodging typhoons and enjoying the aftermath: a machine-like sand point breaking just off the beach.

Kolohe Andino One Session Kolohe’s barrel to air transition game on display
Western Australia has become an aerialist and a barrel riders heaven. Wild winds of all directions, slabs, reefs, tubes and more corner pocket ramps than you know what to do with. It’s easy to see why guys like Kolohe and John John are making this a must stop for gathering clips. The boys love it…
2012 Memoirs A year in review
What Youth was born in 2012, and it makes us misty thinking about all the fun we had last year. But it’s only just begun. We currently just got home from a magical spirit quest into the rough and tumble Pacific Northwest and are packing those same bags that were filled with jackets and 5/4/3’s…

Meet Brendon Gibbens A polite young man with a fucked up alley oop
A while back Brendon Gibbens came through What Youth and sat on our couch. He was tagging along with Dion Agius and Craig Anderson. He was very polite and friendly. Everyone was skating around the warehouse talking shit and hanging out. We had no idea Brendon even surfed. Cut to a few months later in…

Behind the Lense of Epokhe Somewhere in the middle of America
as we all packed up and went home for the evening, Kai and Dion and our good friend Grady Archbold went to the deserted desert somewhere in the middle of America, shot the sunrise with these models and returned the next day with magical imagery and film.
Rainy Day Schedule Kolohe Andino, Jordy Smith, Owen Wright and Julian Wilson in Santa Cruz
Steamer Lane is kelp, rocks, odd sections and cold water blended together. Factor in a cliff of hecklers, very high placement on the food chain, persistent rain and clouds, an aggressive crowd and you’ll see why it can be a very interesting place to watch. Here we feature a few of our favorite approaches to…
