Default Volcano Boarding!

Sound like it could be an interesting off season activity to try once. Just Bring Your Own Board, those plywood sleds look pretty lame.

Well that was a big let-down...I had assumed it involved lava boarding, where you had to time your jump off onto safe terra-firma just as your plywood burst into flames!

Especially if you actually watch the video, they're pretty much just sledding.

Hm... maybe I should grab a $30 POS used snowboard and give it a try.... I'm pretty sure I'd hurt myself on the cinders, but that's half the fun, right?
