Danny Campbell, a 23-year-old Australian BMX rider, hooked up with InfinityList.com, leaders in cinematic online sports content and mb! by Mercedes-Benz Magazine to capture him doing his BMX tricks all over “Wave Rock” — a 47 foot high/350 foot long granite rock face shaped like an over-vert quarter pipe located in the Western Australia Outback.
Shot over three days of blistering heat, hundreds of miles from the nearest major city of Perth, the video takes place in the rock jungle gym that is the Hyden Wildlife Park and showcases the world’s first attempt to drop in on this rock of historical significance.
Danny Campbell negotiated the difficult and dangerous terrain with relative ease after spending a half-day scouting. The rock appears deceptively smooth on film but is actually wicked rough, with large elevated patches of uneven surfaces and took all his tactical finesse to negotiate.
In partnership with mb! by Mercedes-Benz Magazine, Mercedes-Benz Australia provided the use of a new G350 BlueTEC Edition to facilitate the camera crew and talent negotiating the difficult outback terrain in the process of shooting this piece.
It’s kick-in-the-stomach awe-inspiring, if we do say so.
