Inspirations: Taylor Knox

Taylor Knox has been one of my favorite surfers since I was pretty damn young. I’m not sure exactly how old I was when someone first showed me Taylor’s movie “Arc,” but after that I was hooked on his surfing. Taylor is so powerful, compact, stylish, and lays it on rail as well as anyone […]

Board Blog

So as everybody knows, surfboards are a very important piece of surfing. Lucky enough for Conner and I, we have one of the biggest surfboard manufacturers in our backyard! Channel Islands definitely produces some of the most well made surfboards and we live just down the street from the factory so we are always in […]

Tavarua Boatman Stint

Tavarua Boatman Stint

Ever since the first time we went to Tavarua when I was 8 years old I wanted to be a boatman. For the last few weeks I finally got that opportunity to do so and it exceeded any expectations I had! I was able to go down for three weeks and hang out with my […]


Photo Journal Aug 2014

Photo Journal Aug 2014

This last month has been filled with all kinds of crazy action!! It was filled with long plane rides, tons of laughs, good people, and extremely mediocre waves. That description kinda seems to describe the WQS a little… It was all a good time but I must say, its incredible to be home enjoying this […]


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 […]


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 […]


Pleasure at Hurley Recordings

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. […]


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 […]


The Conner Parker Interview

Grom Days

Grom Days

This hat probably holds  more sentimental value to me than anything else I have related to surfing… One year at the Hurley Pro at Trestles I was lucky enough to get a VIP wristband so I could be in the same area as all of my heroes. I remember being about 9 or 10 years […]

Travel Tunes

I just got back from a month long journey in indonesia! As everybody knows California and Indonesia are not close and it takes a really long time to get between the two. When traveling as much as I have the past month its really it is really important to have some good tunes that you […]


Hawaii Pleasure

Hawaii is a magical place. We hold a very special place for it in our hearts and we spend as much time as we can over there every year. This year was one of our most memorable years and we all got super fired up to work on this short film project about our time […]


Etnies Scout

Etnies is a rad brand. Perhaps more importantly, it’s a brand that is comprised of awesome people. This includes the people that work there as well as the team. Parker and I are fortunate enough to be a part of the Etnies family along with Mason Ho, Matt Wilkonson, Pat Schmidt, and Benji Weatherly. This […]

Glide

Glide

There’s something incredibly fun about hopping on a long board and just gliding across some little point break ropers. It’s so simple yet so satisfying. I spent most of my surfing youth, until about age 8 or 9 riding, a long board for the majority of sessions. A while back we had a really solid […]


Eithan’s New vid.

Eithan is one of our good friends. He is a local grom from ventura and is sick little up and coming surfer. We appreciate the fact that he is creating a power game for his surfing. He sure can throw it on rail for a little kid of his stature. We look forward to watching […]


March!

March!

Well, I’d be lying to everybody if I didn’t say I have been lagging on blog posts. I’m sorry for that but March has been a really busy month. I left for Puerto Rico on the 30th of February and went there for a Volcom surf team trip and the premier of Volcom’s new feature […]
