Volcano surfing, also known as ash boarding or volcano boarding is a sport performed on the slopes of a volcano with a thin plywood or metal board.[1] Riders hike up the volcano and slide down, sitting or standing.[2]

Volcano Surfing is considered an "extreme sport" with the danger of falling off and getting cut by the rough volcanic ash. Protective gear including jump suits and goggles are used.[3]
