Thrill Seeking Kayakers & A Photographer Chase Hot Lava

Extreme action photographer Alexandre Socci and a team of professional kayakers Pedro Oliva, Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic do not seem to fear much.

The crew can be seen here pushing the boundaries by paddling through Hawaiian waters to get up close to Kilauea Volcano, one of the world's most active volcanoes. The footage and stills were created for a television show out of Brazil.

The photos document one heck of a thrill ride getting up close to hot lava falling into the ocean.

Those images are really incredible! I was there last year and the fumes from the sulfur were so bad I ended up getting a terrible headache. I'm surprised these guys aren't wearing an air filter mask or something...
