Geoff Rowley walked into What Youth with a skateboard under his arm. He then stood in the center of our warehouse — declining the need to sit down — and proceeded to address the triumphs, struggles and trends facing both the surf and skate cultures — and the optimism he has for them moving forward.
He also went in to detail about lion hunting. His new adventure making knives and coffee with Civil Ware. Filming a Battle Commander piece for The Berrics. His brand new and really inspiring Epicly Later'd piece on Vice, as well as two new full-length skate parts in the works. And continues on about how he truly believes in the lifestyles that drive our cultures and how hopeful he is about their revival thanks to inspiring and unique people coming up and driving it.
Our conversation with him will echo through the halls of our HQ for a long time. Part 1 is now playing above. Check back Monday for Part 2.
