Watch History Being Made as Robbie Maddison Surfs Waves on a Motorbike

I’ve seen some extremely impressive stunts done on motorbikes, but this one has got to be the most insane.

The recently released video Pipe Dream has got to be seen to be believed. The crazy stunt was 2 years in the making, and was pulled off in Tahiti by Australian Robbie Maddison.

9 News reported: His motorbike was modified for the incredible feat, with small skis visible on the front wheel and a propeller tire on the back.

Something clicked in my head. I fantasised putting skis 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.”

He said his experience growing up on the beaches south of Sydney gave him the confidence he needed to pull off the stunt.

“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 this, not to mention have had the knowledge of how to read the wave,” he said.

“I was only comfortable in this scenario because I’ve spent the majority of my life dropping in on waves.

“If I hadn’t been a surfer at heart, I couldn’t have pulled it off.”


MTV wrote: Even after years of experience the daredevil said: “I had a sickening feeling that this might be the one that kills me.”

When Robbie Maddison says he’s going to do something, you’d better believe him. Considered by many to be the modern-day Evel Knievel, the charismatic 34-year-old from Australia has successfully transitioned from pro motocross racer to freestyle star to stuntman and daredevil extraordinaire. Through the years, Maddo has captivated audiences around the world with his limitless courage and never-ending creativity, but his most recent endeavor, Pipe Dream, presented and produced by DC Shoes in association with Robbie Maddison Entertainment, takes everything to a whole new level, and stretches the imagination, Transworld Motorcross wrote.

I don’t think there is anything that could top this.
