Teaser: The Dock 2.0 Starring Chippa Wilson, Noa Deane, Dion Agius And Eithan Osborne Is Landing This Week

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.
