Robbie Maddison is clearly awesome and maybe crazy.
What you are seeing there is exactly what it looks like: a human being riding a dirt bike on a wave. Like, a wave of water in the ocean. I can barely keep a dirt bike upright while standing still with both feet on the ground. Now the question is, where does it rank among these other awesome feats of doing crazy stuff on motorcycles?
For instance, here's Nick de Wit flipping over an airplane.
This guy avoided cops on his motorcycle in pretty impressive fashion.
I'm thinking the official rankings go:
- Wave riding
- Cop avoiding
- Plane flipping
