Crowd surfing describes the process in which a person is passed overhead from person to person during a concert, transferring the person from one part of the venue to another. The “crowd surfer” is passed above everyone’s heads, with everyone’s hands supporting the person’s weight. It is believed to have been invented by Jim Morrison.
Since the year 2000, when 9 people died at a Pearl Jam concert in England, crowd surfing is pretty much prohibited at most venues in Europe.Â However, here in the U.S. crowd surfing is as strong as ever.
From colleges to concerts, here are 15 awesome pictures of crowd surfing.
