We here at Juggernaut, are putting a twist on the traditional bucket list. A bucket list is typically a collection of goals, dreams and aspirations that you want to accomplish within your lifetime. In order words, a bucket list is a way to keep track of your goals and to maximize the experiences in your life. Here on out, we’ll be doing a new series of blogs featuring a Juggernaut Bucket List activity of the week, something that will cause the rush you never knew you needed, the experience you’ve always been seeking and the memory that’ll be impossible to forget no matter how old you get.
What better way to start off this new blog series than to give you a thrill-seeking activity 99% of us have probably never even heard of or thought was even possible. Let's go hit the slopes… no, not those snow covered mountain slopes, we're talking volcano slopes.
Never heard of it? Most haven't. Volcano Surfing or Volcano Boarding is a thrill inducing extreme sport like none other. Volcano surfing started back in 2002 by Zoltan Istvan as a different variation of sand boarding and started by Zoltan going down an active volcano that was spewing lava in the Vanuatu islands. How about that for some adrenaline?
There's two types of classifications when it comes to choosing how big of a dare devil you are; board down an active volcano where immediate dangers are present or choose an inactive volcano where no immediate danger is present. Riders and thrill-seekers all over the world start at the bottom of the volcano and hike all the way up to the top or if that's too much, some people pay locals for a ride up. Once you make it to the top, there's one last decision, how are you getting down? You can either slide down on your butt, sit on a piece of plywood or metal or be the ultimate daredevil and attempt to surf down the slope.
We should warn you though; as with all extreme sports and activities, there’s always risk and danger involved regardless of if the volcano is inactive or active such as falling off your board, getting cut by the volcanic ash, breathing in potentially harmful compounds, or by being hit by flying molten lava. Sounds scary but the majority of people who partake in volcano surfing wear some sort of protective gear such as goggles, masks, knee and elbow pads and even jumpsuits.
If that doesn't scare you off, hit the slopes at some of the most famous spots and surf down Cerro Negro in Nicaragua or go back to where it all started and hit the slopes of Mt. Yasur in Vanuatu.
