Near Death Experience as Biker Rides Powerful Wave
Yes, you heard that right! Robbie Maddison, famous for his previous stunts like backflipping over an open Tower Bridge in London and jumping (bike and all) over a football field, took his extreme dirt bike riding to a whole new level when he rode a huge wave in Tahiti – on his dirt bike!!
Kitted out in his helmet and motocross gear atop a dirt bike fitted with skis, he was certainly not your average looking surfer dude about to take on the iconic and powerful Tahitian waves of Papara. After two years of preparation for this stunt, he finally realised his “pipe dream”. “I don’t think the photos or video show how physical it was,” Maddison told Surfer magazine. “You can’t see that when the wave broke right behind me, I honestly thought that might be the end of my life. I’ve never felt like I was in the wrong place at the wrong time more than I did right there. It was a near-death experience.”
