Surfing Soweto (2006): ‘Surfing’ on top of speeding trains is the ultimate adrenaline experience for South Africa’s disillusioned youth. It’s illegal, dangerous and has already killed hundreds. “I always wanted to be a stuntman”, explains ‘Bitch Nigga’. He doesn’t just surf trains. He ducks bridges, does push ups and has come up with his own entertainment routine, performed from the top of a racing train. Most of the surfers come from broken homes. They spend their days drinking, smoking and teaching each other the latest train surfing techniques.
