Want to see what it’s like to soar over the San Diego Bay over 412 feet piloting a snowmobile? Attached above is the best possible vantage point – a POV video of snowmobile stunter Levi LaVallee as he jumps the bay in 2012 Red Bull. New Year. No Limits.

When watching the video, viewers can also witness Robbie “Maddo” Maddison’s amazing feat. Maddison, the 30-year-old Aussie now living in Temecula, Calif., simultaneously jumped his Yamaha YZ450F motorcycle, breaking his existing certified world record of 351 feet 3 inches by more than 30 feet.

Maddison’s record now stands at 378 feet 9 inches from the take-off ramp..

Levi LaVallee says: “I’m as excited as I think a person can be,” said LaVallee. “I just landed an over 400-foot jump. I’m not sure how the sled’s doing, but I’m OK, so it was good. It’s an amazing feeling. You have no idea how pumped I am.”

Robbie Maddison says: “It’s a cool feeling to do what I do and have the backing I do,” said Maddison. “I was confident we were going to go a long way tonight and we’re going to come back and go even further.”
