A majority of people are always busy in getting through their day to day life, only to get ready for the same routine the following day. But there are few who break out of this regular drill, and do something extraordinary.
In a video that can send chills down anyone’s spine, adventure enthusiast Alison Teal puts acts like swimming with sharks to shame, as she is seen surfing right next to a lava-spewing volcano.
Teal, who became the first woman to achieve this thrilling feat, has been described as the female Indiana Jones. She was shot on her pink surfboard, just inches away from an erupting Kilauea Volcano.
She shared her experience on Facebook in a post which read, "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 thatwe live on a planet that is alive."
She also warned people saying, "The water is boiling, the fumes are lethal and the ocean conditions are beyond treacherous."
