Train Surfing by the Train Rider Answered

Preformed by a German known as "the trainrider". Before he died from leukemia, he enjoyed the last year of his life by surfing on trains. Included Germany's fastest Highspeed train ICE with a top speed of 330 km/h(!) No one did that before.

So, there's a lot of video on the youtubes about him faking his death... It's possible someone is trying to claim the fame - or he really did fake it for a variety of reasons... In any case, it's still quite an amazing feat - but he did it, now you don't have to :p


I was expecting somebody in classic surf pose, high atop the train. I expect it's because UK trains are too steep to stand on the end. Somehow, the use of a giant sucker to hold on is slightly disappointing...

Wow...such a awesome story with a sad ending =(
I would like to try that but im sure my mom would not approve LOL!!
