The blurb -

InfinityList.com leaders in cinematic online sports content collaborated with mb! by Mercedes-Benz Magazine mercedes-benz.com/mb and Australian BMX rider Danny Campbell to conquer “Wave Rock” a 14 m (47 ft) high and 110 m (350 ft) long granite rock face shaped like an over-vert quarter pipe located in the Western Australia Outback.

Shot over 3 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 for what is 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 which appears deceivingly smooth to the naked eye is 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.
