This is the adrenaline-fuelled moment a woman became the first person to surf in the waters of an erupting volcano.
Opting to not wear any safety clothing, Alison Teal took to the waters at the base of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii as it erupted into the ocean.
Red hot lava can be seen spewing from the rocks but it doesn’t seem to faze Alison, who beams and shrieks as she rides the waves.
The 30-year-old, who runs @alisonsadventures, said of the experience: “This was a lifelong dream. It was humbling and breathtaking and hot.

"I was hoping to catch a wave, however, when I got in close I was hit by a spatter of hardening rock spray and I quickly ducked under water.
"I looked back and noticed a wave was coming and I paddled for my life to get out of the danger zone.
"Afterwards I was exhilarated and exhausted at the same time.
"It was an absolute endorphin high, but also terrifying.

"Anything could have happened.”
The surfer said she prayed to the volcano gods before her extreme surf, and warned others not to try it for themselves.
She added: "The molten lava would cook a human body in seconds, the fumes are lethal, and the ocean currents and waves are treacherous.
"I’m very thankful to have approached the situation with a qualified support team.”
