What Youth Issue 1 We made a magazine, here’s what you should know

What Youth Issue 1, Dion Agius

The first issue of our magazine is now available in the new What Youth shop. Click here to order a copy.

The magazine is a quarterly journal of the things we like. Surfing is definitely one of those things, but there are lots of others. They include:


Joy Division

Taking pictures

Staying up late




Irresponsible drinking

LES in particular



Waking up elsewhere

Making movies

The short-arm fullsuit

Kolohe Andino usually

Hendrick’s Gin


Skate videos


Getting two new boards



Our friends


If you like those things you’ll probably love our magazine. If you like most surf magazines as they exist currently you’ll probably hate it. We invite you to ignore the Quarterly if you think that’d be best.


—What Youth
