He’s set world records for distance jumps, done a backflip over London Tower Bridge, also conquered a replica of the Arc de Triomphe in Las Vegas, leapt across the Corinth Canal in Greece and off an Olympic ski jump in Salt Lake City.
In 2015 he even mastered riding on water, taking on the waves at Teahupoo in Tahiti.
And now Shoalhaven-based daredevil Robbie Maddison has taken it to another level again.
Following on from his Pipe Dream adventure in Teahupoo, he has now tackled the legendary Killers break off the Isla Todo Santos.
And you can see him attempting to catch 30 plus foot waves in Pipe Dream 2.
Along the way Maddison also set a world record for the longest distance ridden on water.
“I knew if I was going to do Pipe Dream 2, I would have to push the limits even further and set some new world records with stunts that had never been attempted,” he said.
Last year Blake Becker (19) , inspired by Maddison’s efforts, built his own bike to go on the water and set the world distance record of 17 miles.
Tragically he drowned just days after setting that record.
Maddison said Becker’s death had inspired him to try and beat the record and honour his efforts.
Maddison travelled 19.8 miles in 31 minutes 29 seconds, averaging 36m/h, with a top speed of 45m/h along Mission Bay, San Diego, California.
“It was cool starting off Pipe Dream 2 in that way, honouring Blake,” he said.
“It felt we had stepped up again from Pipe Dream 1. It just felt like we had a win.”
Over a year ago Maddison made his dream of riding his dirt bike on the ocean a reality.

Since then, he's spent his time perfecting his bike and working towards a bigger goal: riding some of the biggest waves in the world.
Maddison pushed the boundaries even further, tackling Killers.
“This one was a mission... it made me work harder than ever before and every hurdle seemed to take me down,” he said.
“The Isla Todo Santos (Baja California Mexico) is known for being able to hold massive swells and massive waves.
“Its nickname is Killers - I was mindful of that.
“Going in the open ocean is hard. Catching a wave is like walking a tightrope.”
He admitted being nervous.
A nasty 30 mile per hour cross wind created a wind chop that created three to four foot ripples across the water meant the first attempt had to be abandoned.
“The ocean won,” he said.

Returning the next day the conditions were more favourable, however again everything didn't go to plan.
Maddison’s first attempt at launching himself from the back of a boat into the surf, resulted in him and his bike going head first into the water.
No to be deterred, he geared up again and was successful in tackling the monster waves.
His reaction upon completing the ride was typical Maddison.
“That was so gnarly dude,” he said.
“I wanted this more than anything. I was focussed.
“It all worked out, I don’t know how but it worked out.
“I never gave up. I want to do things that have never been done before. To find that perfect wave.

“It has taken a few years of work.”
It’s been a busy year for Maddison who also doubled for Vin Diesel in the new xXx movie, The Return of Xander Cage, in some of the motorcycle sequences, including one in which Diesel rides (or appears to ride) his bike across water.
In December he rode his KTM 450, 1.7 kilometres up the Yarra River in Melbourne, reaching an average speed of about 70km/h as part of his role in the Big Bash, where he performed stunts at Melbourne Renegades’ home games.
He has also taken his love of motorbikes to the snow, riding snow bikes, a cross between a dirt bike and snowmobile.
