Volcano Tobogganing / Outdoor Fitness

I headed out into the Pacific Ocean to Chile’s remote territory of Easter Island for the February Tapati festival.

On the summit of a 45 degree volcano, the islanders hold their annual Haka Pei ceremony. Mounting a whittled banana-trunk-rocket, and dressed in nothing but loincloths for protection, competitors are pushed over the edge to attempt to ride the furthest down the lower slopes. Feature story and photos below from the recent issue of Outdoor Fitness magazine.
