KILAUEA VOLCANO, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Former 'Naked and Afraid' star Alison Teal is making international headlines after paddling a surfboard near the lava cliff at Kamokuna.

Teal described the scene as "breathtaking and hot."

The 30-year-old said she wanted to catch a wave but turned around to paddle out of the danger zone when she got sprayed by the hardening lava bits.

In an Instagram post, Teal says it was one of the most powerful moments of her life, but she does not recommend anyone else trying it.
