Showreel: Exploring Heights

For the past five years I have been exploring heights and nothing has ever made me happier. Slacklining took me to places I never thought I would go and enabled me to meet some of the most amazing people on earth. These two minutes feature some of my most joyful moments on and off the line, as well as personal accomplishments, such as the full polyester highline world record (800m @ French Riviera Highline Meeting Winter Edition, France), the Free Solo world record (72m @Hunlen Falls, Canada), and three urban highline world records.Huge thank you goes to my awesome friend Vale Rapp for editing this showreel, as well as to Rad Pack Projects, Leftcoast, One Inch Dreams, 100percent sport, Colin Stewart, Fiscon Media, Red Bull TV, SlacklifeBC, Images d'Azur Photographe, Ugo Capozzoli and Valentin Rapp Filmmaker / Photographer for filming. I'm super stoked for all the projects the next years will bring. The journey is far from over. Last but not least, a shoutout to my rad sponsors and supporters for keeping me well equipped, well fed and decent looking during all my adventures!Red Fox Outdoor Equipment müsli.deJulbo EyewearTicket To The MoonBlackrollOneInchDreams.Slackline locations, in order of appearance:Wilder Kaiser, AustriaStraubing, GermanyMunich, GermanyXianju, ChinaMaunsell Sea Forts, United KingdomKarlsruhe, GermanySquamish, CanadaHunlen Falls, CanadaCatania, ItalyHeiligkreuzkofel, ItalySaint-Jeannet, France

Tijmen van Dieren – Highline Juggling

January 6, 2017 Video

Tijmen van Dieren  juggles 3, 4, and 5 clubs, while highlining in the Swiss Mountains. He has a handful of juggling patterns down, now, and can sustain the patterns for at least a few seconds. We might see a 3-club cascade send, soon.

This is definitely a guy to follow. Tijmen’s videos are posted on Slacktivity’s YouTube Channel.

Living on the Edge – Seneca Rocks, West Virginia

January 1, 2017 Video

This is a great short film, highlighting a really cool highlining spot.

The Seneca Rocks are very thin, which creates an abnormally large amount of exposure, for such a short line. On top of that, you can BASE jump down, afterward, as long as other people carry your gear down for you.

I’m not sure of all of the highliners, but I know that Hai Thai is one of them.

Free Solo in the Mont Blanc Range, France

December 30, 2016 Video

Free soloing is the most dangerous type of highlining. You don’t have any safety protection. If you fall, that’s it. You’re going to die. It’s extremely risky, but I’m sure the thrill of doing it is worth it. I’ve never done it, yet, so I don’t know how it feels, but I have a lot of respect for the people that can do it. They believe in themselves and their abilities.

There aren’t many skills that allow you to risk your life, based on your abilities. I suppose a bowler could bet a hitman that he will make a strike, get a turkey, or bowl a 300. If you involve a hitman, you could bet your life on anything, but it’s just not the same. The hitman is able to not kill you, however, gravity is 100% sure to never give you mercy.

So far, nobody has died, while attempting free solos, thankfully. I hope it doesn’t become a crime, before I get to do it.

With a short amount of looking, I couldn’t figure out who did this. If anybody knows, please comment and I will add in some proper recognition.
