The Tails

Old School Videos!


We’ve been doing youngwisetails for a pretty long time now… I’d say we’re coming up on 6 years! It’s been a blast to say the least. We have had so many good times, met so many cool people, and laughed our asses off through the whole deal. Perry was looking back through some old videos and we thought we would re-post some of our earlier funny times to share with you guys!

Rincon Jam/Surf Colab.


In true jam fashion, this is a true jam edit. Michael Kew films lots of local stuff around Rincon and popped this up on the web two days ago. I believe that it’s pretty much entirely filmed around 3 days at Rincon this year. We didn’t have¬† many days, but when it was on, it was definitely on. It’s always a pleasure sharing waves with Dane, especially at our home break. The tunes to the Video are Travers Adler, Jack Letinsky, Donnie Hedden and myself jamming at the Lucky Llama coffee shop in Carp. Thanks for putting this together and bringing back some epic winter memories.

Pleasure at Hurley Recordings


Last week the epic humans who run the Hurley Recording studios down in Costa Mesa (Greg Teal and Davey Warsop) let us bring down our good friends in Pleasure, to record 5 songs for our next YWT movie (title TBD). They jammed out extremely hard for two days straight and locked in 5 amazing songs. Chris even wrote lyrics and sang two songs for the first time ever while recording them. It was some seriously impressive shiznit, not to mention the face melting guitar solos, radical drum fills, and heavy bass riffs. We threw in a classic evening at the local Hooters and sealed the deal with a crazy sushi dinner at Sushi Sho. Needless to say we are incredibly psyched. Perry is working on a behind the scenes video of the recording process…

CJ and Damo Movie


Cj and Damien Hobgood are surfing legends. They are extremely nice and are all around epic humans. I am truly stoked that I have had the experience of knowing them, surfing against them, and also learning from them. They have a tremendous story and are looking to raise money to make a documentary on their lives and rivalry. Check out the trailer below and click HERE to go to the indiegogo page to help support their film!
