A collaboration between What Youth Magazine and Reef, “Anything Sing,” filmed and edited by Victor Pakpour and produced by Kai Neville, showcases the talents of Mick Fanning, Shane Dorian, Luke Davis, Beau Foster, Ford Archbold, Nick Rozsa, Paul Fisher, Conner Coffin and many other talented surfers. Accompanied by a rockin’ indie soundtrack combined with gritty lifestyle cutscenes, this mid-length film will be sure to get you amped to go surf, even on a cloudy stormy day, so beware!
The directors of Dear Suburbia collaborated on Anything Sing, as Kai Neville and Reef X What Youth’s attempt to rise above the chaos of our every day lives by creating one’s own environment and settings through new canvases, water and moments.
Some of the most memorable sessions are the lucid evening sessions in Morocco, Mick Fanning dismantling mainland Mexico’s pointbreaks like Superbank, and Shane Dorian’s ground-shattering paddle in sessions at Maui’s Pe’ahi where he snagged the Billabong XXL award for “Ride of the Year” and $50,000 USD.
The film premiered at the Newport Beach Film Festival with a kickoff party to celebrate the latest What Youth project. Enjoy a few photos from the fiesta:
