This Woman Nonchalantly Surfs Away From Molten Lava Spewing From A Volcano

This Woman Nonchalantly Surfs Away From Molten Lava Spewing From A Volcano

I'm a big fan of people who like to live on the edge.

Take Alison Teal for example - an adventurer who has become the first person to surf the base of an erupting volcano and swim within feet of flowing lava.

It makes for a compelling watch. You can see it here...

And here's a picture she posted to Instagram too...

Fair play to the Hawaiian, when you're swimming close to molten death it's good to look so chilled.

Posting the photo to her Instagram, she said: "Kilauea volcano eruption is flowing into the sea. Since I was a three-year-old naked wahine dancing hula on the lava rocks in front of my home, I always felt a connection with Earth, or the Aina as Hawaiians call it.

"One of my biggest dreams was to paddle my pink surfboard in a volcanic area to feel a true connection to Earth being formed. Today my dream came true.

"With the guidance, support, and prayer of the elders, and following cultural protocol, I paddled within feet of hot lava rivers pouring into the ocean. It was humbling and breathtaking. The rawness, the heat, the crackling and hissing sounds, the reality check that we live on a planet that is alive."

Her team woke at sunrise and drove three hours before taking a fishing boat five hours out to sea, arriving at the base of the volcano by sunset.

The 30-year-old describes herself as 'a female Indiana Jones with a pink surfboard and a cause'.

It's definitely worth following her on Instagram because she posts loads of cool pictures, with earnest captions about how much she's loving life.
