"That thing would kill you if it hit you, yeah?" asked Noa Deane (@ilovetables) after the fact. "The Dock" is a short film we made with @volcom, a #stabconcept shoot featuring an alternative wave entry technique, displayed on the east coast of Bali in May. It's now live on our site. Link in bio. Thanks to our surfers and @candockmodularfloatingsystem.
Innovative wave entry technique on the east coast of Bali in May of this year. “The Dock” is a short film made in collaboration with Volcom and Stab Magazine. Noa Deane had this to say about the setup from an article in Stab Mag:
“It would just kill you if it hit you, yeah? 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 floating plastic dock was 100 foot long and weighed a half ton, making it potentially deadly given the force behind a break like this. Do not try to recreate this, its obviously super duper dangerous.
