Michael Darling Is An Unrelentingly Dogged Sonuvabitch
A Corona edit through and through.
Boredom is ubiquitous. It’s impossible to escape the monotony’s intricate web, a feeling with which we identify now more than ever.
Some cope with puzzles, weed, or Fruit Ninja, while others transform their stress into hyper-productivity. Michael Darling is most definitely the latter.
The 25-year-old used his downtime in quarantine to aggregate footage from all the filmers who stood dutifully freezing on the beach while he splashed around, and with the help of Marcus Paladino, compiled it into this edit. But that’s not the only reason we’re applauding Michael’s productivity.
Being a University of Victoria alum, we applaud any and all surfers who rep stickers on their board while obtaining a four-year degree. With a name like Mr. Darling, a sweet frontside wrap, and a strong head on his shoulders, the future is bright for this young Canadian. Click in above to watch “Social Distance”.
