Video: Death Defying 'Train Surfing' Teenage Rider
The most challenging part for the train surfer?
“The most difficult part is to climb on the train as there are security guards and police on the railway stations," he says.
Not only does "Train Surfer" Alex Nomernoy ride on top of trains, he films his daring adventures and posts them on YouTube. He rides around on the high-speed cars risking his life.
He's not picky - busy underground to cargo and commuter rails all suit him the same. His death-defying feats have earned him notoriety online.
According to Alex, 'I really like travelling, to observe the world from different angle from roofs and towers'. He also says that his dangerous rides are not frightening at all.
“I’m fanatical about speed and heights. I feel comfortable in these conditions," he continues.
It would appear that he is just another modern, average daredevil seeking thrills, but he disagrees. He says he doesn't like the stereotypes that go along with urban explorers and train hoppers being 'self-destroyers'. Rather, he sees it as a life choice outside of the mundane.
Stay safe out there, Alex!
