Kayak vs. Volcano

While getting footage for a program about kayaking in Hawaii, Alexandre Socci followed professional kayakers Pedro Oliva, Ben Stookesberry, and Chris Korbulic as they attempted to get all kayak-y up in the fiery wrath of active volcano Kilauea, off the southeast slope of Mauna Loa. Alexandre remarked that the shots were incredibly hard to get due to their impending doom, their safety constantly threatened by boiling hot waters and errant magma coals, in fact several of the actual kayaks emerged from the carnage pocketed with newly-formed, smoldering craters. Definitely something majority of humanity should not attempt on their own, though if you’re certified EXXXTREEEEME, then why haven’t you already done this naked?
