Watch Robbie Maddison Trip On Water Once more In San Diego


Australian motocross legend Robbie Maddison is again to his biking-on-water methods in 2023. It’s not the Strait of Istanbul this time, although, and he’s not out to set a brand new world document by using throughout the water from Europe to Asia and again once more. (Been there, executed that again in 2021, proper?) 

No, this time, Maddison and his entire household are testing the water bike’s capabilities in sunny San Diego, California. Motion digital camera specialist Insta360 needed to make a video showcasing the stunt legend’s story and talents, so Maddison, his household, and his crew all packed up the water bike and headed to the seaside to seize some footage. 

This behind-the-scenes video offers somewhat little bit of perception into the method. Whereas Maddison says that he didn’t assume that he’d be using this bike on water once more after the Europe/Asia journey, the proper alternative introduced itself, so how might he say no? For security, he had an airbag mounted on the tank, that he might deploy just by pulling a string if he wanted it. Within the occasion that the bike began to sink within the water, the airbag ought to be capable to maintain it from submerging so he might get to security (and hopefully retrieve the bike). 

The waters have been stunning, and the bike was behaving extraordinarily effectively. So effectively, in truth, that throughout the observe run, Maddison noticed that the bike felt one of the best it ever had out on water. Subsequent runs to really seize video footage labored effectively, though seemingly didn’t really feel fairly nearly as good as that first run. Nonetheless, at no level did he find yourself needing to deploy the emergency bike floatation system, so it’s most likely secure to name {that a} win total. 

Later within the video, the entire crew relocated to a close-by superior hill for somewhat stealthy little bit of capturing on a totally registered, street-legal dirtbike. A lot of the neighbors have been cool about having this absolute legend and his movie crew shoot the stunt, however in fact there was one Karen who had zero chill about the entire thing, and reportedly refused to be happy even once they advised her they have been leaving. The group obtained what they wanted and obtained out of there, which is all documented within the BTS video. 

In any case, it’s also possible to take a look at the completed Insta360 video, wherein Maddison talks a bit about how Evel and Robbie Knievel impressed him to do what he does, and to make the daring choices that he’s made together with his life. Seeing the pair of movies collectively is fairly fascinating, and the BTS video specifically is cool since you get to see each Maddison and his children experience. What an superior household exercise.
