When you think of extreme athletes, Aussie Moto-X rider Robbie Maddison
should be at the top of your list. Robbie is one of the most daring extreme
athletes in the world today.
His extreme stunts have included jumping on and off of Vegas landmarks,
setting jump distance records off an Olympic ski jump and, for good measure,
even taking his motorcycle into the giant surf of Tahiti and more!
After Robbie saw Jetpack America demonstrating its water jetpacks
at Red Bull’s 2013 Flugtag in Long Beach, CA., Robbie decided he
needed to give hydroflight a try.
In 2013, Robbie came to Jetpack Amercia in Newport Beach with some
of his friends – the Aussie hip-hop band Bliss-n-Eso so they could check
out hydroflight for themselves.

No world records were set that day, which is what Robbie usually does,
but we can say without hesitation Robbie was probably one of the best
first-time jetpack pilots we’ve ever seen!
Robbie, as you have already seen, was born to fly!
His Aussie mates, Bliss-n-Eso, loved it too!
