A laidback tradie has gone head-to-head with a monster crocodile after being spotted riding the dangerous beast like a surfboard on an outback river in Australia.
The barefoot adventurer seemingly tied rope around the massive reptile’s mouth and made a make-shift lead to manoeuvre the croc in the murky waters.
The image has claimed the title of ‘the most Australian photo ever’, as the reckless tradesman balances on the crocodile’s back while his mates watch on in a nearby tinnie.
But doubts have already been raised about the authenticity of the image, with some claiming it looks staged.

‘This guy takes the Australian surfer cliche to a whole ‘nother level,’ another commented.
Others sarcastically agreed they had also attempted the absurd stunt as an alternative mode of transportation.
‘This is how I travel to work in the morning,’ one said.
‘Mate there are way easier ways to off yourself if you have a death wish, just saying,’ another commented.
