Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel
When the weather is great and it’s an awesome day, what are you going to do – ride a dirt bike or go surfing?
For Australian motorbike stunt rider Robbie “Maddo” Maddison the answer is “both.”
Maddo, the motorbike stunt double for James Bond actor Daniel Craig in the Bond movie Skyfall, spent two years preparing to live his pipe dream of surfing on a dirt bike.
This year he succeeded, partnering with DC shoes to turn his dream into a reality, surfing on his dirt bike in Tahiti.
Drawing stares and applause from amazed onlookers, Maddo’s stunt, immortalized in the Pipe Dream video by DC, has had more than 22 million views.
To see Maddo’s epic bike ride and an exclusive interview with him by Cristina Costea, take a look at this feature story SurfWriter Girls friends at BookSurfCamps.com shared with us. Just click on: Pipe Dream
Then hold on for the ride of a lifetime!
