Now don’t get me wrong, the surfing, editing, and overall presentation of Modern Collective is out of this world, but one thing bugs me: the over dramatic piano tune that seems to be the intro for every flick that passes through the Poor Specimen editing bay. But hey, if that’s the only knock on these ripping hipsters then it’s probably worth the price when it comes out in early November.
The future is now: A collective of six surfers set out on a voyage to alter one’s perception of modern day surfing.
Forget pre-dawn charging. Forget golden lighting. Forget glassy waters. They ignore perfect point breaks in favor of chunky onshore wedges. This is about high performance, state of the art, modern as hell.. Onshore=keepers,
Follow these vogue individuals and obtain a candid look at what a session is actually like with the world’s best. The future has already happened you will just be watching the replay.
