A relatively recent addition to the adrenaline activity catalogue, volcano boarding is exactly as it sounds, tearing at breakneck speeds down the ash-covered slopes of an active volcano using nothing more than a thin wood or metal board, and with not much more than a boiler suit and a helmet for protection!

Though invented in Hawaii, today it is the captivating nation of Nicaragua that is considered the sport’s spiritual home, specifically the 728m-tall Cerro Negro (one of the youngest and most active volcanoes in Central America) which due to its consistent surfaces, strong, steady winds, steep slopes, and truly breathtaking views, is widely regarded as the finest location for volcano boarding on the planet.
