Incredible Lava Kayaking

Incredible Lava Kayaking


Fearless Pedro Oliva, from Brazil, paddled within feet of the red-hot lava flows pouring down from Kilauea volcano, on the island of Hawaii (Big Island). But as if that wasn't enough, he decided to get out and explore the expanding coastline - on foot, setting fire to the paddle. Wearing white sunglasses to protect him from the lavas glare, Pedro walked on recently cooled flows which rapidly expand the islands size. Carrying his kayak and oar on his shoulder, he nonchalantly posed for photos - even taking time to drink a can of drink. Pedro was part of a kayak expedition to explore some of Hawaii's lesser known kayaking routes with Chris Korbulic and Ben Stookesberry. They were filming the latest leg of TV program Kaiak, an adventure kayak series aired on Brazilian channel Canal Off. During the kayaking trip the team explored four islands by kayak - Big Island, Maui, Kauai, and Oahu - scouting over 300 waterfalls and rivers.

The programme Kaiak will be aired on Canal Off:​k/
