A number of risk-taking thrill-seekers are being sought after a dangerous stunt was caught on a speed camera in Western Australia.

The speed camera snapped the ute travelling at 119km/h in a 100km/h zone, but it appears exceeding the speed limit is only one part of the problem.

In the grainy image from the camera, a man can be seen reclining on the bonnet of the ute drinking from a bottle in one hand and giving the finger with the other hand.

An arm hanging out of the passenger window also appears to be holding a bottle.

The reckless act was captured on Indian Ocean Drive in Gabbadah, roughly 80km north of Perth, at almost 2.30am on Saturday October 23.

Police also allege the number plates belong to a different car.

Anyone who sees the ute is urged to call police on 131 444.

Anyone with information regarding the vehicle is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Stunt slammed: ‘Not funny’

The post on WA Police’s Facebook page quickly attracted thousands of shares and more than 7000 comments.

One of those comments came from a former ambulance officer who warned of the dangers of car surfing.

“I was an ambulance officer who had to attend to a person who did this and came off,” they wrote.

"They did survive, but only because the volunteer ambulance officers were highly trained and knew what to do. Otherwise this fool would have died.

“It's not funny, it is heartbreaking for everyone who has to clean up the mess.

“DON'T DO IT.”
