Volcano Boarding, Seriously hot!

August 15th, 2013

Everyone’s heard of snowboarding right? Many of us have even ditched our skis and given the single board a go on the piste. But have you ever dreamed it would be possible to careen down the slopes of an active volcano on your snowboard?! Well, one of the first to try the unusual sport of volcano boarding back in 2004 is adventure-seeker, like Joshua Berman, co-author of the Moon Nicaragua travel guide.

Berman, and his team have just completed their most recent challenge of boarding down Cerro Negro in Nicaragua, which has erupted more than 20 times over the years and is known as “the youngest, most active volcano in the hemisphere,” says Berman, 40. Funny enough, the steep 45-minute climb to the top is the physically demanding part. Getting down is a breeze. Berman says he slid down the volcano snowboarder style, but he went slower than you might think. “The boards bogged down in the sand and ash, but the wind blowing the dust behind us gave the illusion of great speed in the photos,” he says. Very few people have yet to try this unique sport – will you be one of them?
