Robbie Maddison – MULTIPLE WORLD RECORD HOLDING MOTOCROSS ATHLETE. He is a man who makes his entire living on doing things on a motorcycle that no one would ever think about. But now, he has outdone himself in a fashion that is downright incomprehensible.
The collab video with DC Shoes was done in Tahiti, on a regular KTM250SX with a couple of custom mods, allowing the bike to hydroplane for long distances without that whole sinking thing (although inflatable floats were attached to the bike, just in case) And, of course, not just any wave would do, it had to be the legendary Teahupo’o reefbreak in Tahiti, French Polynesia. Renowned for the consistent number of barrels it delivers, Teahupo’o is characterized by its shallow coral reef, which lies only 20 inches below the water’s surface and is largely responsible for the desirable shape of the waves its famous for. The footage is unbelievable. You have got to check this out!
