Video: Sliding Fire - Skiing and Snowboarding on an Active Volcano in the South Pacific

We've seen a lot of skiing and snowboarding films over the years, but none like this one. In this short documentary we travel to Vanuatu in the South Pacific where we join freeriders Xavier de le Rue, Victor De Le Rue, and Sam Smoothy as they test their skills on the side of an active volcano in a place where there is no snow. As you would expect, it turns out to be quite an adventure in a place that looks like paradise on Earth.

Video: Descent into Marum Crater on Vanuatu

This short-film follows a team of adventure photographers/explorers as they descend into the Marum Crater, located on Ambrym Island in Vanuatu, to become the first men to stand at the edge of the lava lake that fills the bottom of that location. It is quite an adventure, which eventually puts them face to face with one of the most destructive forces on our planet. This is amazing footage, all captured on the new GoPro Hero4 Black, with some of it used in the promo video that launched that new camera.
