Kayakers paddles close to Kilauea lava

Kilauea Volcano has erupted lava almost continuously since 1983, and the flows have added 500 acres of new land to the southeastern shores of the big island of Hawaii. So it is no real surprise to learn that where the lava flows meet the ocean, the water is dangerously hot. Like, boiling hot. This didn’t stop daredevil kayakers from paddling up close to the hot lava as part of a Brazilian adventure kayak television series. No, in fact, these kayakers seek out the world’s most extreme places to paddle.
