Thrill-Seeking Kayakers Paddle Across an Effective Volcano

Extreme sports expert photographer Alexandre Socci associated expert kayaker Pedrolati Oliva and his group (including kayakers Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic) as they made the decision to take on the strong ocean around Kilauea, a dynamic volcanic on the southern east mountain of Mauna Loa in south-central Hawaii. As opposed to a common water adventure, though, the group kayaked together with moves of melted lava as it streaming down the gushing volcanic.

Originally in Hawaii islands to movie the newest sequel of their Brazil TV system named Kaiak for Route OFF, Socci informs us that the group didn't really know what to anticipate. He recounts the day for us:
"We got out of bed at 3:30 AM to be in the harbor at 4 AM and get there at 5:45 AM, before sunrise, to get the best light to see the lava and the kayaks on water. We got there and for the first 20 minutes we were just looking at everything and trying to figure out what to do... then Pedro decided to get on his kayak and go for it.... We didn't expect that."
"As a water photographer myself I was trying to get into the water but it was impossible, the water was about 90 degrees Celsius and there were lots of lava particles floating that could burn anything in seconds... even the kayaks came out of the water with some 'scars' from the floating lava!!!"
Socci's amazing pictures say it all as the fantastic melted stone can be seen oozing its way into the water just a few legs away from the daredevil kayakers. Like a landscape directly from an interesting activity series, the place is loaded with stunning vapor, curly ocean, and warp speed lava. Actually, Oliva even captured one of his oars on flame due to its contact with the lava moves. As a cautionary concept, he says :
 "I hope people don't see these images and think that it is safe to paddle so close to the lava because really it's not safe at all."

The Diving Horses of Atlantic City

For nearly half a century, Atlantic City, in New Jersey, United States, was home to an attraction almost too fantastical to believe—an apparently fearless horse with a young woman on its back would leap off a tower some 40 feet high into a pool of water below. The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.
