The Tails

Parker Coffin x Youngwisetails

Here is a new clip that Ryan and I have been working on since I have been at home injured. There are some clips from California, Portugal, and Hawaii and some groovy tunes by New Order. Check it out !  Tweet


Influences: Tom Curren

Tommy Curren has been my biggest surfing influence since the first time I ever watched him surf. I remember being really young and just thinking he was this super elusive, almost mythical person, who popped up randomly when the waves were amazing and surfed them to perfection. Tom’s style has this unique blend of silky […]


Noah Schweizer

Well, if you are a teenage girl Noah needs no introduction. He was voted Surfing Magazines “Biggest Lady Killer” of 2014 in the teenage issue for a reason. However, if you are curious why you haven’t seen too much of Noah it’s because he is just now coming into his own. He’s been traveling a […]


Musical Happenings

Musical Happenings

In the last few months a few buddies and I ( Adam Lambert and Travers Adler) have been playing a ton of music. And we’ve finally been dialing in a few things that we are stoked. Last weekend we played our first show as the “Hidden City Band” at a new venue called 416 state […]


Bobby Martinez

Well… If you were wondering if Bobby is still surfing amazing, here is your answer. This is one session around home this winter that Bobby put on an absolute clinic. In my opinion he’s the best goofy foot tube rider I’ve ever seen second to maybe Gerry Lopez. Go ahead, watch and be amazed. Tweet


Oz Playlist

Here’s 6 songs that have been getting me psyched lately! Been really digging the Derek and the Dominos stuff lately. Clapton’s guitar playing is godly. Tweet


OZ!!!

OZ!!!

We’re back, and we’re having a blast! Parker, Ryan, and i came down for the Hurley Australian open of surf and another comp at Newcastle the following week. It’s been pretty small thus far, but we have been sneaking some waves around the contest site. Here are a few screen grabs from Perry working his […]


Peek-a-booby

Peek-a-booby

This quiver for the upcoming 6 stars in Australia has been named the “peek-a-booby” quiver because each board shows some boobs that are somewhat hidden. These are all a little bit shorter, wider, and thicker than your average shortboards so they go in the lackluster waves of Manly Beach, Sydney Australia. When I got these […]


Rincon Classic

Rincon Classic

Last weekend came together for a beautiful 2015 Rincon Classic. I was really stoked to jump back from Hawaii to be there for it again this year. It was an amazing weekend with some great waves and good vibes all around. The final was really slow, but I was able to sneak a few lucky […]


Tail of the Week : Catherine Zeta Jones

Tail of the Week : Catherine Zeta Jones

Basically, we watched Zorro the other night (the first one) and decided Cather Zeta Jones was one of the most beautiful women to ever walk the earth. Here’s proof. If you haven’t watched Zorro we highly recommend it. It’s epic. Tweet


Greenough Footage

Growing up in Montecito, George Greenough has always been a mysterious, legendary, and nearly mythical person. I’ve heard countless stories of Greenough and obviously seen his surf films and the amazing waves he has scored around here. I always imagine growing up here back when Greenough did and what it would be like. I’ve never […]


Throwback!

Throwback!

This is my first NSSA event that I had ever won when I was about 8 years old in the Open Mini Groms division at Huntington Beach. Looking back, this is probably the most important moment of my life haha. Right here, taking this photo was when I realized how much fun competitive surfing was […]


Tales of the North Shore: Haleiwa

Tales of the North Shore: Haleiwa

Haleiwa wrapped up about a week ago, and damn was it a good event! It was so epic to finally have some pumping surf for an event, especially Haleiwa because it is such a fun wave. Joel was helping me out with the local knowledge in my heats (he lives across the street and is […]


Playlist: Neil Young-Ragged Glory

Playlist capability has been achieved on youngwisetails! Thanks to mark and the brains behind this web operation, we can now embed playlists out of spotify! And hopefully you can listen to them without necessarily having to sign up for Spotify, although you probably should because it kicks ass. Anyways, this one is a Neil Young […]


Fred Stubble

The Fred Stubble is a slight spin off of the Fred Rubble. An inch or so off of each end, slightly wider outline, and tweaked concave in the bottom created an epic board for the every day beach mission, regardless of the conditions. It’s one of those boards that works in the smallest of waves […]


Haleiwa!

Haleiwa!

The Triple Crown is here! The first day of the Haleiwa waiting period is tomorrow and I couldn’t be more psyched! The waves have been super fun the last few days and it’s great to be back on the North Shore cruising with Perry! We’ve been cracking it at Haleiwa super early the last few […]


Film Past

 Film Past

When I was 10 my grandparents gave me an old Minolta film camera that i used to shoot pictures of animals at the zoo with. Later i started to take it on our many surf adventures and would dabble with shooting photos here and there. I’ve always been drawn towards portrait photography. I love when […]


ASP World Juniors

Well it didn’t quite go as planned… I ended up with a 9th place which obviously wasn’t my goal but it could have been worse! I did learn a lot and had one super fun heat with Dylan Lightfoot. Dylan is an amazing surfer and it was such a pleasure to have such a battle […]


Pre Heat Psyche!!!

Conner and I are both getting ready for events coming up this next week and we have been texting each other back and forth about how psyched we are to compete. Conner is in Brazil and I’m in portugal. As we are both getting psyched I remembered this amazing Chris Davidson video of him absolutely […]


Tunes: Lynyrd Skynyrd

I don’t think there’s one thing that isn’t bad ass about Lynyrd Skynyrd. Their first couple albums are pure southern, honky tonk, raw, rock n’ roll. Here’s a video of them playing live on my birthday 16 years before i was born. Tweet


Before the Crowds!

Before the Crowds!

Ryan and I saw a fun opportunity to jump over to Hawaii and get some fun waves before the whole circus of the triple crown showed up. The waves have been pretty small, but its always fun when its not too crowded and you are in board shorts. Swell is starting to pick up now, […]


Bella Vita Giveaway!

Bella Vita Giveaway!

Bella Vita! The amazing documentary on surfing and the surf culture in Italy that we were apart of is now available for download on Itunes! Bella Vita is our Uncle’s baby and it features Chris Del Moro, Dave Rastavich, Leo Fiorivanti, Parker, and myself. We actually scored some really fun surf throughout our trip!  The […]


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

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 […]
