Stunt Man Rides His Dirt Bike On Dangerous Oceanic Waves

This was definitely something out of the dream when Australian stunt rider Robbie "Maddo" Maddison rode his bike on the blue ocean. Some read it in story books, some dream it, but Robbie just did it.


It can be called as a near to death experience, the waves at times can kill you as it has killed many in past. But Robbie was up for a task and he just did it so easily as if it was walk in the park for someone.


When Robbie was asked about the real experience with the Tahiti waves of South Pacific ocean by The Surfer Magazine, he said:

The thing that sticks with me the most after that whole experience was how physically demanding it was. Honestly, I really thought that getting the right wave would have been easier [Laughs]. I don’t think the photos or video show how physical it was. 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. At the end of the day, the images and footage say something pretty awesome, but the ferocity and how gnarly that thing was can’t really be put into words.


Words still cannot describe what has actually happened down there, you have to see it yourself.
