Robbie Maddison Rides Dirt Bike on Huge Waves

The world famous bike rider pulled off another unimaginable stunt

Australian daredevil Robbie Maddison is famous for its spectacular stunts. He pulled off another unimaginable act again. The 34-year old Maddison rode a dirt bike on huge waves in Tahiti.

The footage shows Robbie Maddison flirting with danger and displaying his biking skills on Teahupoo waves.

Robbie Maddison started to perform stunts at a very young age. He won multiple competitions at both amateur and pro level and made his name as one of the stunt riders in the world. He also acted as a stunt-double for Daniel Craig in 2012 James Bond movie “Skyfall.”

Maddison holds many world records. One of the them was set in March 2008 when he jumped a motorcycle around 1.07m (346 feet) in front of his home crowd. It was the longest motorcycle jump of its time. He went on to break many motorcycle jumping records in following years as well.

This time around, Maddison did a bit of experimentation. He took the bike to Tahiti. Rode it across gigantic waves in full gear and filmed an incredible stunt.

Maddison gave an interview to Surfer Magazine and talked about the recent stunt. The daredevil told he is not new to surfing. He grew up doing a lot of surfing back in Australia.

“I’ve surfed since I was 8 years old. I’ve been a surfer for like 26 years. If I wasn’t a surfer growing up there’s no way I would have ever even imagined it, not to mention have had the knowledge of how to read the wave.”

Talking about where the idea came from, Maddison said.

“My wife is a big-time wakeboard champion, so every time we’re home in Australia we’re in boats, on the water etc. I guess the idea originally came from…I fantasized putting skies on a bike and riding on water. It was a stupid vision at the time, but I kept toying with it, playing with designs and concepts and eventually it became a reality.
