The DC Shoes project: Robbie Maddison surfs his motorbike over the waves.

Robbie Maddison is an Australian motorbike stunt rider, who volunteered to help DC Shoes in the implementation of the project named "Pipe Dream". It took as many as two and half years to put the project across. The footage was made in Tahiti. It was there that Madison tested a specially modified motorbike for the first time, because only a specially equipped motorbike could ride on water. For that end, the bike was provided with special wings as in a hydroplane, waterproof engine, and upgraded rear tires. After a number of tests, Robbie got to the water on the boat, then he started to ride over waves. Having waited for a big wave, the brave rider boldly rushed forward, and barely had time to get out of it. According to Madison, at the crucial moment he was nearly thrown off the motorbike by the overwhelmed wave. Luckily everything worked out. Not many people believed in the success of the project, but with the help of this brave motorcycle racer, it was managed to prove the contrary. This project has shown that the human possibilities are endless.
