Teaser: The Dock 2.0 Starring Chippa Wilson, Noa Deane, Dion Agius And Eithan Osborne Is Landing This Week
"It's like a floating fucking death machine" - Dion Agius
In April, we shipped 160 cubes courtesy of Candock Modular Floating Systems, weighing two tons down to Oaxaca, Mexico for our second attempt at a paddle-less entry, or what is now known as The Dock.
For The Dock 2.0, our goal was to anchor the platform in semi-terrific (ideally terrific) surf, the ultimate shot being a split peak, with two surfers to stepping off promptly into a tube. This shot never happened, but the stars of The Dock 2.0 did find solace in the offshore cylinders of Mainland Mex, putting on a display of cuts, bruises and high-fidelity surfing along the way.
This is an exercise into the different ways one can ride a wave – a quite dangerous one at that. The power behind a three foot wave can be terrifying, especially when standing atop a two-ton, floating platform submitting to a raw, winding Pacific Ocean.
The Dock 2.0 presented by Monster Energy, starring Chippa, Noa, Eithan and Dion, is coming this week.
Giving new meaning to a long walk off a short dock.
