Brenno Dorrington In “An Apprentice’s Dream”
Midget Magic’s got a job, and he’s tube-thirsty as ever.
There’s nothing harder for pro surfers than going straight.
You know, like, getting a “real” job. With the exception of maybe a dozen people in the world, eventually, the pro surf career screeches to a halt with the proverbial question, “What’s next?”
When your previous job description has included traveling the world, surfing, drinking beers, and chasing tail, punching a time clock is a filthy pill to swallow. An old surf photographer affectionally calls retired pro surfers “box packers,” due to their tendency to end up working in the warehouse of the brand they were formerly sponsored by… occasionally climbing the ranks of Team Manager.
Enter tube-thirsty motherfucker Mr. Brent Dorrington. In his newest film project, “The Apprentice’s Dream,” he envisions the reality of being a “third year apprentice plasterer” that can’t help but bugger out to Indo when the purple blog calls. Teaming up with Lachly McKinnon, the footage doesn’t disappoint
