Advertisers are in a constant battle to come up with something new, something unique, off the charts, something that hasn’t been done and overdone. Well, DC Shoes seems to have done it with this video of X Games competitor Robbie Maddison on a modified KTM dirt bike, surfing the waves off the shores of Tahiti. This is no waterbike. There are no gimicks or tricks, this is an actual video of his ride over the water and into the surf.
They rigged up some skis on the bike and paddles on the rear tire, which means he has to keep moving, but the bike still runs on land which you can see from the shots as he rides a trail, through a stream, over the beach and into the ocean.
Like every other stunt, once it’s been done, you can expect others to rush in and try to top it, but for now, Robbie Maddison is the rider who did it. I expect there are going to be some bikes under water really soon.
