Aussie stunt rider Robbie Maddison is one ballsy dude.
The 34-year-old, who grew up in Kiama in NSW, has backflipped over the Tower Bridge in London (when it was open), leapt over 91m across the Corinth Canal and, most recently, jumped close to 121m over the San Diego Harbour with friend Levi Lavallee on a snowmobile next to him.
But his latest stunt “Pipe Dream”, just released by his sponsor DC Shoes, is NEXT LEVEL.
Feared by every surfer ever, including fearless shark-puncher Mick Fanning, the waves at Teahupoo and Papara in the French Polynesia are fucking massive, yet Maddison is filmed bouncing across the surface of the water on his dirt bike like it ain’t no thang.
Watch the madness:
Because he’s human, the FMX rider has admitted to shitting his pants ahead of the stunt, which took more than two years of planning and modification to his motorbike to include small skis on the front wheel and a propeller tyre on the back.
“I had a sickening feeling that this might be the one that kills me.”
And he nailed it. Legend.
