TAHITI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

What happens when you combine surfing and motorcycle riding?

That is exactly what happened during an insane stunt shot off the coast of French Polynesia in Tahiti.

Professional dirt biker Robbie "Maddo" Maddison worked for two years to get this to work.

He created a modified bike that boasts special fins for hydroplaning, a waterproof engine, and custom rear tires.

Robbie stunned other swimmers and boaters when he took his bike into the water and 'surfed' the famous break known as Teahupoo.
