Jack Coleman's surreal trip continues with "Mandarin Brown"

Jack Coleman is not the surf world’s most user-friendly filmmaker. His work is all shot on film, usually Super-8, with all the accompanying grain and blur you’d expect, which he then layers over with a whole bunch of color saturation. This particular edit ignores cutting-edge high-performance surfing altogether in favor of the big board stylings of guys like Alex Knost and Ryan Burch, with Burch’s segment alone making the film worth your time. Hipster haters beware.
