No Need To Paddle; These Surfers Installed A Dock So They Can Run On The Waves

No Need To Paddle; These Surfers Installed A Dock So They Can Run On The Waves

"The Dock" is 100-feet of floating plastic runway that allows surfers to get a running start before jumping on a wave.

The massive dock was towed out to a beach in Bali for a group of surfers to test thanks to a collaboration between Volcom and Stab Mag. It rose and fell at incredible speeds as six-foot waves slammed into it.

Though the dock turned out to be a whole lot more dangerous than anyone expected, none of the surfers who tested it were injured.

And as you can see from the video and photos, these guys had a blast being launched from the platform.

Looking at the footage, everyone almost dies at one point or another.

"I was thinking recently, I can't believe we pulled that off. Looking at the footage, everyone almost dies at one point or another," says photographer Tom Carey who braved the dock with the surfers. "If that dock bitch slapped someone they’d probably get knocked out. It’s no joke. But, this was by far the most fun I’ve had shooting in a long time. We had a fucking blast.”
