Dirt bikes and oceans; those are two things that just don't go together—unless you are stunt rider Robbie Maddison.

In the video above, Maddison shows he has the ability to defy logic and do the unthinkable: ride a wave on a dirt bike. According to the YouTube description, he did this in the "unchartered saltwater terrain of the Pacific Ocean in French Polynesia."

How is that possible? No, really, how is that possible?

According to designboom.com, "His team spent days testing and building fins, waterproof sealed engines and different rear tire designs to accomplish a hydroplaning dirt bike."
