Exotic Kayaking Adventures


Check out this awesome link about some daredevil kayakers who are pushing the limits when it comes to new exciting places to paddle! What do you think… would you paddle there?

“A trio of extreme kayakers recently took their daredevilry to scorching heights when they paddled in a red-hot lava “river” near an active volcano. As this stunning video shows, professional kayakers Pedro Oliva, Chris Korbulic and Ben Stookesberry had been on an expedition in Hawaii when they came across the fiery Kilauea volcano, which is one of the most active in the world.The trio paddled within feet of the blistering lava flows that spewed from the volcano into the waters below, before taking to the expanding lava coastline on foot. “The goal of our expedition was to find rivers and waterfalls in Hawaii and the possibility of finding a river of lava was so enticing,” Oliva, who is from Brazil, said in the video. “The feeling of arriving [at Kilauea] in the very first light of the day and seeing the lava flowing into the ocean was really unforgettable.” But as exciting as their adventures seem, Oliva pointed out in the video that his team’s extreme kayaking antics are often extremely dangerous and should not be attempted by non-professionals. “I hope people don’t see these images and think that it is safe,” said Oliva of his recent brush with the steaming volcano.””
