Oh so modern!
Dusty on the front cover...Dion on the back.
Check the double MC covers on the latest Stab. They've got a bigger crush on my cast than I do. Both these moves are in the film and they're sweet like chocolate.

Still not sold on this twitter rage..... though for some reason the 44 and even JOB beg for it. Check this out!

"Why disappear in Southern France for a week? My life is so fantastic that it's a constant struggle to outdo myself."

"I just ate a cheeseburger with egg for breakfast and washed it down with an icey RedBull. I'm proud to be an American."

"9/10 of the men in clubs rape women, mentally. The other 1/10 rape the men, mentally."

"Southern hemi swell looking beautiful. I get paid to chase it. You don't."

mmmm, should modern collective start a twitter page? is this blog not enough? do you want every saucy detail... "just cracked a Monster now photoshopping muscles on Yadin" yuk.

of the 
Is it possible that some sort of voodoo women cast a spell on the boys? Did they rub some girl the wrong way, burn a with doctor in the lineup?
It has been labeled 'the curse of the collective' a twisted tale of events cast upon the Modern Collective voyage. 
-Dane broken hoof - france, three months out.
-Dion hammy from run in - france.
-Yadin tweaked back pulled out of Cabo.
-Dusty quiver of eggs - Morrocco.
-Jordy attacked by bear lady and swine flu - west oz.
Now Dion has injured his foot in the same spot at the same wave......
Gypsy stop this curse and wash the boys from this injury stink!
The collective will come together for the last trip soon...

Big thanks to everyone who dropped tunes for us to check out. So many people sent through tracks it was cool to hear your thoughts on the soundtrack. I just came across this little you tube clip and it rekindled some presets love. I first saw them five years ago bang out tunes at one of Luke Stedman's sydney shindigs. I had heard a little too much of late, thats until this alternate version of Are You The One (also Dion's tune for his Stranger part) dropped!

Also a fresh little remix to download here

M83 have been running a video contest for the fabulous track "We Own the Sky"
check this runner up clip and view the winner here.

Dusty ditches his way onto the cover of Surfing Magazine. 
The shot was snapped during the collective's voyage to West Oz. Grab the issue to see the Modern Collective story so far... with some actual photos. No frame grabs Tom Carey, DJ Struntz & Rob Giley shot the shit out of our trips.

Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, and sometimes ridiculous, VIVE COOL CITY has some very raw entertaining vids.
I have seen a sneek preview of CASTLES IN THE SKY the follow up to the movie Sipping Jetstreams. As you would expect the visions are stunning. You can check some frame grabs from a recent session in Peru with Rob & Clay here

Picture this

An Island we knew little about 
A wave we weren't sure even existed
We took the chance & brushed the fun peaks out front
We voyaged into the jungle and then finally our jaws dropped
A turquoise blue fun park with not another surfer in sight... yooaaw
we weren't hunting any laird slabs this was a wave were innovation would shine

in one surf
all these frames below were stomped
Jordy went loony
