Up-close footage of lava flowing into the sea from the volcanic coastline of Hawaii early last year.
Huge, deadly waves coursing over a razor sharp reef – a playground for gnarl-bothering pipe-freaks.
A timelapse filmed by Sean Goebel filmed over three nights at the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii – the Northern Hemisphere’s premier astronomy location due its low light pollution and14,000ft (4267m) elevation.
The beams are laser guide stars, shot into the atmosphere by the observatories to correct for atmospheric light distortion and create artificial ‘stars’ that act as reference points.
Music: All is Violent, All is Bright by God is an Astronaut.
Hiking (crawling, tip-toeing – call it what you will) along the ridiculously narrow Pali Puka ridge in Oahu: a trail with huge drop-offs on either side.
The clip – shot with a tiny a GoPro Hero camera – would have been just as impressive without the epic music score but, according to hiker dgcpinoy, the raw audio is simply ‘awful low quality shrieking wind’.
That, and the squeaky-balloon sound of butt cheeks clenching.
