The thrill-seeking subway surfer who has spent the past decade riding the rails like a daredevil turned himself in to police, Transit Chief Joseph Fox said on Monday morning.

Christopher Guttilla, 24, who took footage of himself standing on the roof of a 7 train as it zipped through Queens last week, was identified and wanted by cops for pulling his most recent stunt.

“After initial foolish decision, the man made a much smarter one & turned himself in,” Fox posted on Twitter along with a video of Guttilla on top of the train.

“Please don’t ride on top of the subway cars.”

Guttilla’s father Joseph Guttilla, 48, of Rego Park, told The Post last week his son is autistic and has been surfing trains since he was 14.

“He used to do it with his friends,” said Guttilla. “They outgrew it, but he never did.”

Guttilla, who already has a long rap sheet for a variety of crimes involving subway mischief and graffiti, is now facing misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and criminal trespass, said cops.
