Here are one or two things about the people in this piece:
Before this summer, Owen Wright had never really been to America besides for surf contests, and during contests you don’t really do anything else. So this year Owen came with his lovely girlfriend, who’s studying for her teaching credential, and they just did American things. They went to Six Flags and the San Diego Zoo. And Owen surfed Trestles.
Taj Burrow just remodeled his house in Western Australia, on a property he’s owned for around 10 years and says he’ll never leave. Now after the remodel, the house is circular. It’s a round house. It looks out over Taj’s favorite wave but when Taj is away from home, and in California in particular, he surfs Trestles instead.
Jack Freestone, Mitch Crews and Creed McTaggart are in France. They’ve just arrived. There’s a surf contest there and then they’ll be posted up in a rented Hossegor flat to film and enjoy summertime. But before they left for Europe they were here in California, and they surfed Trestles.
Vega Trestles is better than everywhere else

The What Youth 2017 Memoirs Another year on the run chasing the free riders, thinkers and doers.
The general consensus is that 2017…well, sucked. And believe us, it wasn’t without it’s challenges, experiences — both good and bad — failure, success, the whole lot of living. And it was no different for us. We choked our fair share of times, but we always got through it. We’re here to get in the way….
Watch “Do Not Pray For Us” We went on a Bro Style road trip to the Pacific Northwest with Leo Romero, Corey Glick, Jaws, Dakota Servold and Dylan Witkin

Watch “Some Kind of Vacation” California is a multiple choice question. And we chose all of the above. New film from WY and Richer Poorer.
“We were just the hell crew. The kind where people were giving us the ‘Oh fuck, please don’t look at anything or you might break it!’ look. It was great.” —Evan Mock It was a road trip of course. The pavement kind. Rubber to road. The junk food- and litter-filled van kind. Wet wetsuits everywhere. Skateboards….
Some Kind of Vacation Prequel 3: Ian Crane is a great road tripper
We kinda got skunked the whole time. For the most part we just drove in circle. It was something like three fun surfs in a week. But I’d do it again right now.”—Ian Crane Yeah, we got skunked, but it wasn’t all for not. We hit the road to rip and see what kind of…
Watch: “Long Beach, NY” When we all flock to the city to surf: Starring Balaram Stack, Oliver Kurtz, Ian Crane, Shane Borland and more
When things come together at the coast in New York it can make for some really good times. As you’ll see here: Hurricane Maria sent waves that had both west coast and east coast dudes flocking into town. Balaram Stack hosted the boys and it sure makes you wanna contemplate a move to the East…
Some Kind of Vacation Prequel 2 of our road trip presented by Richer Poorer with Evan Mock, Ian Crane, Dylan Goodale and friends along the California coast
This teaser for Some Kind of Vacation features Evan Mock. A Hawaiian. A skateboarder…who surfs too. Evan is one of those annoying kids who is good at everything and charming as all hell. He would jump out of the van when we’d see a skate spot and make us all watch him rip it. Then…
Watch “Inside Magenta” Skateboard through Paris with Vivien Feil of Magenta Skateboards and learn about their new collab with Adidas
Vivien Feil started Magenta Skateboards in 2010 with his brother Jean and friend Soy Panday.

Some Kind of Vacation Richer Poorer x What Youth present a mess of a road trip across California.
California is a damn fine playground. And while you could call it our backyard, we wanted to explore the next layer. We loaded up a van a few different times. And we went. With Ian Crane, Evan Mock, Dylan Goodale and we met up with everyone we know all over the place. It will eventually…
About Tomorrow What Youth Issue 18 and much more…Live tonight at midnight PST
We came in this morning and the lights wouldn’t work. But I just fucking fixed em. And we’re off again. It was sunny outside and we might have found cover in a few waves out front. But enough about our morning, above you’ll see something preparing you for what’s to come tomorrow. And a lot…
New Scenery, New Noise A new film: Skating, surfing and snowboarding in the all day light of Sweden and Norway I Presented by Adidas
Drinking gets you closer to the Gods in Norway. Or so they say. And we just got up close and personal with them.

Watch “Vinho Verde” Really good surfing in the oldest world of Portugal with Mitch Coleborn, Soli Bailey, Mitch Crews and Dusty Payne
Vinho Verde is actually white wine. But the bottle in green and the taste is terrific. And in Portugal, you can drink with any and every meal you choose. It accents buttery white fish perfectly.

Watch “El Norte” A skate trip through Northern Spain supported by Globe
A trip usually suggests planning, an itinerary, some form of goal or destination. That’s a trip. This was more an impulsive 48 hour mission into the Basque Country. A place renowned for it’s good weather and gluten fuelled cuisine. Turns out we chose the only two days of summer when the sun went into hiding,…
