The resort town of Villa Epecuén was flooded by a rare weather event known as a seiche (it’s a type of standing wave) on November 10, 1985. After spending 25 years underwater, it’s now re-emerged, a perfect wasteland playground for the world’s best freestyle trials rider.

The Red Bull video “Epecuén,” named after the town itself, shows Danny exploring the forgotten city and pushing his limits in a surreal landscape.
