The Dock: paddling is history, just jump into the wave | Photo: Volcom/Stab

Who said you can't literally walk on water before catching a wave? Impossible mission? No way, Jose. Just install a 100-foot plastic floating dock in a pristine surf break.

They said it was one of the funniest things they have ever done. Balaram Stack, Imaikalani Devault, Noa Deane, Ozzie Wright, Mitch Coleborn, and Yago Dora have just had the time of their lives.

Seriously, who could say no to an experience like this?

Volcom teamed up with Stab to install a floating docking anchored in the middle of an A-frame peak in Bali, Indonesia. Yes, it looks both exciting and dangerous, but it worked out pretty well.

The young, talented surfers were invited to paddle out, jump on the dock, and then catch a wave from the structure into the water. Believe it or not, it is not as easy as it appears at first glance.

The snaky and dangerous structure will hit you if you don't time the acid drop well. When a wave approaches, the surfer can either leap directly into it or run down the dock and then hit the roller.

The 100-foot floating dock lets you wait for the wave set, sitting on what looks like a jigsaw puzzle, and later split the peak with a friend. In the first experience, the boys had a few frightening wipeouts.

Hopefully, the idea will catch on with the surfing community, and the formula will be improved. "Paddling is a thing of the past," says Stack. We couldn't agree more.
