THAT YOU BUILT
The Flower Boy, Noa Deane under a petalled sky, an idea crafted by last year’s winner, Mr Mick Kelleher
A STAB X VOLCOM JOINT
Direct Stab’s next concept shoot, and walk away with $1,500!
This isn't our first dance with fireworks. Remember Bruce Irons illuminating a pitch black tube? John John’s dream scene dropping from a helicopter in the sky? Surfing’s first studio shoot in a Spanish wave pool? Or, the 100 foot, half tonne plastic raft in the Indian Ocean – the world’s first paddle-less lineup, also know as The Dock?
No idea is too big. And if you've got something wild, we want it. Age, gender, occupation, sexual preference - it don’t matter. Whether it’s designed on a PDF, or scribbled on a napkin. All that matters is the idea.
THE DOCK
Anchoring a 100 foot half tonne plastic raft in the middle of a surf break is no easy feat. At four am we were up, towing out what’s now known as "The Dock” in Bali for this concept shoot.
We asked ourselves, what does the future look like? A cashless society? Self-driving cars? We’ll leave the wavepools for Kelly Slater and co. Instead, we envisioned a lineup where you don’t have to paddle. Which turns out to be a rather dangerous affair.

Bruce Irons Dances With Fire
Stab attached a phosphorous flare to Bruce’s deck-grip using a zip-tie and wax and drove the subject into the lineup. After a 45 minute Indonesian lull, a smooth mid-sized wave appeared. Bruce tore the head off the flare, stepped off the ski, and with a flaring tail drove through the barrel.

John John Florence's Dream World
What kind of smoke and mirrors are required to entice the world’s best surfer? The promise of something fabulous, most certainly. It was Stab’s wish to recreate a dream scene, the sort you might find on the pleasant shore of the French Riviera, about half way between Marseilles and the Italian border.
