The Wind of Change

June 3, 2017 Video

This is a 21 minute documentary about a recent world record attempt, at Todra Gorge, in Morocco, for walking the longest highline. Samuel Volery and Daniel Laruelle both attempt to send. Due to complications with weather and the authorities, they are forced to cut the line down, twice, in the process.

Here is the final version of our project in Morocco, where we tried to break the highline world record in October, but…

Traffic Light – Rodeoline Multitasking

December 30, 2016 Video

This is Andres Holguin, from Brasil? He is a beast. In the video, below, while balancing on a rodeoline, he juggles 4 clubs, spins a ring around his leg, and balances a spinning ball on a stick, held in his teeth. Since this video, he also added balancing a contact juggling ball on his forehead. I can’t find the new video anymore, though.

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.
