What's up with the moto dudes always trying to get way too EXTREME with things. We tried to let motocross rider Robbie Maddison have his fun in the short video clip "Pipe Dream" a couple years ago, where he made his "dream" (LOL) of riding his dirtbike on the ocean a reality. But watching Robbie ride his pollution machine through arguably the most idyllic place on earth Teahupoo, Tahiti, just left us with a bad taste in our mouth.
Now he's back at it again, and we're even more vexed. Robbie recently dropped "Pipe Dream 2" via Vice Sports and it taught us not only to never waste our time on content like this, but it also gave us quite a few reasons as to why motocross should stay the hell away from surfing. (Please reference video below. Beware you'll lose a good 7-minutes of your life).
1. The Glorious Pearl off the Boat
It's pretty obvious that Robbie Maddison doesn't understand that dirtbikes don't belong in the ocean, but maybe that massive pearl off the boat (4:48), that threw him over his handle bars, will knock some understanding into him.
2. Stealing Thunder From a Dead Guy
So you're telling us that Robbie Maddison wants to honor a kid, who drowned while setting the new world record for the longest ride on water with a dirtbike, by smashing that one record and the only thing he would be known for?!? Thunder stealer.
3. Motor Oil in Already Polluted Oceans
I mean, with Trump in the White House and his recent attacks on the Environmental Protection Agency, I guess motocross fanatics think it's alright to parade their pollution machines in some of the most gorgeous oceans in the world, both in Tahiti and Baja. Oil and water don't mix man.
4. Fake Movie Edits To Dramatize Weak Attempts
Did you see this guy ride a wave? Yeah us either. But they sure did a good job of cutting to huge sets at Killers and then showing Robbie cruising 300-feet ahead of the actual wave he's supposed to be riding.
5. Shameless Product Placements
How many times do we have to see that damn Samsung watch? (1:57, 2:38, 2:48, 6:30) We've never seen more forced product placement. At least with surf branded content, the surfers are just rocking some board shorts or a sticker on their board.
Needless to say, moto guys, just stay on your dirt tracks and let us handle the wave-riding.
