Jaw-dropping XDubai Stunts!

Over the last couple of years XDubai athletes have performed some spectacular stunts across Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts in Dubai. Here’s a round up of our favourites…

Ola Selsjord

In December 2017 this XDubai athlete had an impressive day out at Wild Wadi Waterpark™ – when he was let loose on the slides before the taps were turned on! This Norwegian has made a big impact on the BMX scene with his powerful and technical riding.

Nick Jacobsen

In April 2017 XDubai’s kiteboarding and kitesurfing champion, demonstrated the true meaning of adventure with his record-breaking and world-first feat from the Burj Al Arab’s Jumeirah’s helipad. The XDubai team and Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East pulled off the jaw-dropping stunt and set a new world-record for the highest kiteboarding jump ever – an incredible 210 metres, smashing his own previous world-record of 90m! Watch the video below.

Kie Willis

In August 2016 professional freerunner and parkour athlete Kie Willis enjoyed the ultimate playcation in Dubai as he navigated his way around Madinat Jumeirah the only way he knew how. Watch this extraordinary video where he demonstrates exactly what the human body is capable of as he traverses his way across the roof tops with a series of acrobatic stunts.

He gracefully jumps over sheer drops, leaps up walls and rolls his way around the famous Arabian Resort of Dubai while taking in views of  Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, the world’s most luxurious hotel. Part of “Storm Freerun” the no.1 freerunning team in the world and XDubai athlete, Kie insists there was no adrenaline rush and that this latest stunt was ‘just another day in the office.’
