Alison Teal Tries Surfing Hawaii Volcano Eruption
Kilauea Volcano is erupting on the Big Island of Hawaii and flowing into the ocean for the first time since 2011.
Alison, a surfer and film maker, travels the world with her pink surfboard filming environmental and cultural phenomena, sharing it through her online series Alison’s Adventures, with a mission to educate through entertainment. She was named the “Female Indiana Jones” by Time Magazine (2015) and the “Oprah of Adventure” by The Huffington Post and O Magazine (2016).
Pele, the goddess of the Volcano, is a highly respected and often feared force in Hawaii and very specific traditions must be followed to avoid certain death. We consulted with the Elders for their guidance, permission, and followed precise cultural protocol.
I do not recommend doing this nor encourage it EVER, the water is boiling, the fumes are lethal and the ocean conditions are beyond treacherous.
