WTF Video of the Day: Robbie Maddison Rides Iconic Tahiti Waves on Motorbike

RobbieMaddison-pipedream5 RobbieMaddison-pipedream8RobbieMaddison-pipedream7

This is not CGI, DC Shoes just released a ridiculous video of Robbie “Maddo” Maddison riding a modified motorbike into a wave at Teahupo’o. Not sure how the surf community will feel about Tahiti’s iconic waves being charged by a guy in motocross gear, the part where he rips past some people paddling just makes it all seem so obnoxious. While it’s hard to deny its brilliance from a design standpoint, this video will surely be divisive.

Watch Robbie Maddison’s “PIPE DREAM” video below.

Insane Video of the Day: Pro Surfer Mick Fanning Attacked by Shark During Surfing Final in South Africa

THIS IS CRAZY. Just as the final of the J-Bay Open at South Africa’s Jeffreys Bay was getting underway on Sunday, surfer Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark on live television. Miraculously he was able to get away completely unscathed, punching the shark in the back, before being rescued. The final was eventually cancelled when two other sharks were spotted in the area.

It is insane to me that they continue to surf here when there are so many shark-related incidents. Pretty wild to see this all caught on tape, but isn’t it only a matter of time before something worse happens? Is it worth it? Watch the full video clip of the event below.
