WATCH: Man surfs down street standing on motorcycle

A dangerous stunt has proved costly for one man in Japan after he was filmed riding his motorcycle while standing on the seat.

He was filmed stand-up riding his motorbike through the streets of Hadano.

Police got involved after the video was posted online and tracked down the man using other security vision.

They say he showed remorse for the risky manoeuvre - but still fined him the equivalent of $80.
