Meet Kobzarro, the Russian Batgirl who surfs on trains

19 October 2016

Fancy a more exhilarating commute? Perhaps consider taking a leaf out of Kobzarro the Russian train surfer’s book.

Here we see the 19-year-old decked out as Batgirl while clinging to the back of a Moscow metro carriage and balancing on top of a train as it makes its way through a snowy urban landscape.

“For me, riding a train is a special practice – I feel an inflow of the force and the freedom and the broadening of my mind,” says Kobzarro, who discovered train surfing as a way to escape her overprotective parents.
