We're making the first What Youth surf film — and we need liftoff. This will be the first of many WY trips to film for the movie.

About

$5,737

Remember "We quit, we're poor" and all that when we started What Youth? Well, not much has changed, still pretty strapped but we wanna keep creating. And now we need your help. 

In saying that: We're embarking on the first surf trip for our new film. And that means we need some money. 

There are swells stacking up in the North Pacific and Chippa Wilson, Harry Bryant, Mitch Coleborn, Colin Moran and Nate Tyler are en route to join us on the road. And instead of panhandling out front of the corporate conglomerates, we'd rather keep it real. 

The funds will go toward camera rental gear, accommodations, gas and a rental van to hold it all while we drive around hunting ramps. We also might order a few "Kerouac's" at our favorite bar, Vesuvio. Drinks on you!

Kidding. Kinda. But really, we wanna go document the world's best and officially launch the What Youth Surf Movie and we want you guys to be involved. Not corporate industry. They'll call us later.  

Risks and challenges

It's gonna be cold. Unpredictable. And there are a lot of sharks where we're going. Hostile locals too. And sometimes the waves just suck. But we're prepared to make the most of it, and will find a way to release this one way or another — and there will be a party. And you will be invited.
