DC Shoes(PAPEETE, Tahiti) -- Tahiti is a surfer’s paradise. Now, it’s paradise for stunt rider Robbie Maddison.

Maddison, who partnered with DC Shoes, was able to fulfill a three-year dream and ride a modified-motorcycle across the waves on Tahiti’s shore.

The dramatic video below shows Maddison zooming through a rainforest before trading solid ground for water.

He enters the water at full speed and manages to zoom across the surface with water spraying up from behind the bike.

Maddison, an X Games medalist and world-record holding athlete, speeds past surfers into an oncoming wave. It looks like he had barely enough speed to outrun the wave, but he makes it out, with his dirt bike aiming straight for shore.

Maddison worked with DC to modify his dirt bike and add skis to the front and back wheels. The bike also has airbags, activated if Maddison pulls the lever, to keep the bike from sinking to the bottom of the ocean if he crashed.

Brian Kersey/Getty Images(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- Buffalo Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer has been suspended for six games without pay following an incident in which he allegedly punched a teenage boy in the face.

"The suspension will begin on Monday, September 7, 2015 and end with the conclusion of the Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals game on October 18, 2015," the football team said in a statement Sunday night.

The Bills said it had investigated the July 11 incident for weeks before reaching its decision.

"We worked in conjunction with the NFL on this matter and we are highly supportive of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy that holds all NFL and club employees to a higher standard," the team said.

Kromer is accused of punching the boy in the face and threatening to kill his family following an argument over beach chairs, ESPN reports. His son, Zachery, who was with him during the incident, allegedly placed his hands on another boy during the dispute.

Charges against both of them have been dropped, according to ESPN.

iStock/Thinkstock(AMARILLO, Texas) — Drag-racing reality star “Daddy Dave” Comstock is recovering after a serious crash during a race in which his car catapulted off the track and somersaulted at least six times.

The accident happened Saturday, during a no-prep race at Amarillo Dragway in Texas. Comstock’s hot rod, nicknamed “Goliath,” swerved and rolled, its front end mangled in the crash.

Comstock stars on the Discovery Channel series Street Outlaws.

His wife, Cassi, updated his fans about his condition in a Facebook post, writing that he suffered a serious concussion, a bruised lung and “plenty of bumps and bruises.”

“Still doesn’t remember anything that happened,” she wrote.

“I am thankful to have my husband alive! I’m sure he will be back, just need time to heal and go from there!” she added.

Steve Lamberson, race operations manager at Amarillo Dragway, was standing at the starting line when Comstock’s car spiraled out of control.

“It just overpowered the racetrack,” Lamberson said. “It was basically halfway down the racetrack where it made impact with the guardrail.”

Street Outlaws made its debut in 2013, and the show’s fourth season concluded in March.

Liberal Bee Jays(LIBERAL, Kan.) — A 9-year-old bat boy for a Kansas baseball team died Sunday, one day after he was accidentally struck by a bat during a game.

Kaiser Carlile, the bat boy for the Liberal Bee Jays summer team in Liberal, Kansas, was struck in the head as a player took practice swings during Saturday’s game against the San Diego Waves. Carlile was wearing a helmet.

He was hospitalized in critical condition after being struck by the bat.

“With the permission of the family, and with much sorrow and a very broken heart, I regretfully inform everyone that Kaiser Carlile passed away earlier this evening,” team president Nathan McCaffrey wrote in a statement. “Please keep his family and our team in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you all for the support during this ordeal.”

Kadon Simmons, a player on the team, referred to Carlile as "a little brother I never had" in an Instagram post.

"No person or team could ask for a better bat boy," Simmons wrote. "It is terrible to see you leave in such a way, but knowing your last moments were on the baseball field makes it easier through this whole process, because you were doing what you loved."

The Liberal Bee Jays play in the Jayhawk Baseball League, a summer league for college players.

(Karl Mondon/MCT via Getty Images)(CANTON, Ohio) -- The daughter of Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Junior Seau will be permitted to speak at her father's induction, the Hall of Fame announced Sunday.

Seau, who committed suicide in 2012, was diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a neurodegenerative disease due to repeated head trauma. CTE has been found in a number of former NFL players.

Earlier this summer, the Pro Football Hall of Fame had said that, following policy, deceased inductees would be enshrined with a video presentation, but that Seau would not be represented by a live speaker. The hall changed course, however, after frustration on the part of Sydney Seau, who told the New York Times that it was "frustrating" and "painful" to "not be able to speak."

According to the Hall of Fame, Sydney Seau will speak about her father "immediately following the unveiling of his bronzed bust." His presentation will also include Seau's three sons.

"Our goal is to maintain our policy regarding Enshrinement speeches, but also show compassion and understanding," Pro Football Hall of Fame President David Baker said in a statement.

Matthew Stockman/Getty Images(RIO DE JANEIRO) -- Another big win for Ultimate Fighting Championship powerhouse "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey.

Saturday night in Rio, UFC star Ronda Rousey (12-0) defeated Brazilian challenger Bethe Correia (9-1) in their bantamweight title fight during UFC 190 in 34 seconds. Correia was knocked out cold by a right hand.

"I'm prepared to deal with anything," said Rousey. "That's why I'm the champ."

The former U.S. Olympian in judo continues to cement her legend status in the UFC and currently holds the UFC record for fastest finish in a title fight, at 14 seconds.

Her nickname, "Rowdy," comes from "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, who passed away on Friday.

"We lost a close friend," Rousey told ESPN. "'Rowdy' Roddy Piper gave me permission to use his name. I hope he had a good time watching this today."
