Volcom and Stab teamed up to install a 100-foot floating dock and put in the middle of an A-frame peak in Bali and invited a select crew to try out: Noa Deane, Balaram Stack, Ozzie Wright, Mitch Coleborn, Yago Dora, and Imai Devault.
The danger involved was also on everyone’s minds as the set up began. “It would just kill you if it hit you, yeah?” said Noa. “What’s it weigh? Half a tonne? When it wears a wave on the head it kicks like a snake. Like, Balaram jumped up and went six feet in the air. Then he landed on the wire, so sketchy. It whips right at the end because it’s connected to a cable which adds extra tension.”
The wires, the ropes, the waves, the unpredictability of the anchor were all threatening variables. Ozzie recalls, “The Dock’s been scary. At one stage I just came up, got my board, and saw it coming right at me. But I like the chaos of it.”
The guys claimed this to be one of the funnest thing they’ve ever done. This is truly how a party wave should be done.
It’s the most creative and fun way you could ever surf 4-8 foot perfection. Who could say no to an experience like this?
