Volcano Boarding, is it on Your Bucket List?

Last week-end, I was treated to an adventure by Yeity.com and Bigfoot Hostel in Leon, Nicaragua. My assignment: to photograph Volcano Boarders. You can visit the article on Yeity’s site, a fabulous website for travelers who enjoy adventure, the unusual and the road less traveled.

I have to admit, Volcano Boarding or sliding down a volcano was not on my bucket list, though I do love to run up them. I joined an enthusiastic mixed group of backpackers and we headed for Cerro Negro in a bright orange safari truck. We sped along a narrow dirt road and crashed through wayward tree branches, kicking up dust, and bouncing along. I enjoyed the hike up the volcano, the view was spectacular, the greens of the jungle contrasting with black mounds of volcanic ash. Our guide Irene multi-tasked between guiding us along the trail, recounting the origins of this popular sport, and documenting the journey with photography.

I love to shoot action, and athletes, and I loved the expressions the most. Second to the outfits. Irene and I bounded down the mound, stopping halfway, at the prime photo making location. One of the group’s members was paralyzed with fright, and abandoned her board to slide down on her bum, allowing me a turn for my ride down.

El fin de semana pasado, yo tuve una gran aventura de Yeity.com y Bigfoot Hostel en Leon, Nicaragua. Me asignaron: tomar fotos de los surfistas de volcan. Tu puedes vistar el articulo a la pagina de Yeity.com, a fabulosa pagina para viajeros que le gusta las aventuras, lo inusual y la calle sin viaje.

Yo admito, Surfiar de Volacan o deslizar abajo un volcan no estuve a mi lista de temas, pero a mi me gusta correr a la cima. Yo participe con un gruppo de mochilleros muy emocionados y nosotros fuimos al Cerro Negro en una brillante camioneta anaranjada. Nosotros vamos muy rapido en una pequeña calle polvorienta y estrellarse con las ramas de los arboles, distribuyendo polvo, y nos sacudimos. Yo disfruté caminar arriba del volcan, la vista es spectacular, lo verde de la bosque contraste con lo negro del volcan. Nuestra guia Irene hizo muchas cosas, nos guió el camino, y dijo historias de este lugare populare, y tomo fotos para documentar.

A mi me gusta tomar fotos de acion, y athleticas, y a mi me gusta las mejores expressiones. Segunda de los trajes. Irene y yo corrimos con pasos gigantescos, y paramos a la mitat de la distancia, los mejores lugares para fotos. Un miembro del gruppo tuvo miedo, y abandono su tabla, deslizo con su nalga, me dieron la opportunidad de ir abajo en la tabla.
