5 most extreme sports (part 2)

Volcano Surfing
If skiing or sledding in the snow is not extreme enough, it’s time to go on a trip to an active volcano.

Landing on a volcano or surfing on volcanoes is exactly what it looks like, you are gliding along the slope of a volcano covered in cool ash. And by ashes we mean mainly small pieces of sharp volcanic rocks.

After walking along the rocks and debris to the top, riders descend the volcano on makeshift plywood toboggans, which makes this extreme sport accessible to everyone. The best of the best, can ride on a slope, standing on the board.

Most riders use binding boards and boots. But you can also surf volcanoes with thin plywood from any other metal board. Riders also wear safety glasses and other protective equipment as needed.

Most riders prefer a standing position and follow a slalom-like pattern. But it is also common to see riders use a sitting position or a luge position.

Surfing on volcanoes is not disputed at a competitive level, but is practiced only at a recreational level. It is fully reserved for adventurers with a high level of adrenaline who cannot get enough sensations from surfing in the sand.
Free dive
When you dive, you literally end up in a situation where you physically cannot breathe if something goes wrong. Most divers have oxygen tanks, but some athletes ignore this usual equipment and prefer free diving.

Like many of these extreme sports, freediving is exactly what it looks like – the diver has no survival equipment except for the fins. Freediver descends and rises in one breath of air. Changes in pressure during deep diving, physical exertion necessary to ascend to the surface, and mental panic that can occur, do this not just by holding your breath for a really long time.
