Australian extreme sports athlete Robbie Maddison made some waves over the weekend.

After strapping some skis onto his bike, which was fitted with a paddle steamer-like real wheel he went to one of the surf capitals of the world, Tahiti, to try it all out – on the water.

With monstrous waves, the location of Teahupoo was a brave choice but unsurprising given Maddison’s habit for performing death defying stunts. (see video clip above)
