In 2006 when I first stepped on a Slackline I had no clue where this one Inch wide Webbing would take me. Slacklining back then was not a sport, it wasn´t known in Europe and I was really lucky coming across it. Now almost 10 years later this balancing Challenge has grown into my profession and makes up for a great part of my everyday life. Slacklining has evolved into a sport with a great variety of facets and challenges and I have grown with it.
It sounds cheesy to say but some of my happiest hours have been taking place on this one inch wide paradise and my Slackine has taken me to five continents and almost 30 countries around the globe, so I could meet great people and discover the finest places on earth. Along with this I have been continuously pushing the limits of our sport by establishing world records, creating new tricks, helping to create new event formats and doing expeditions in order to be the first to Slackline across gorges and mountain ranges.

Always keep the fun and continue to slackline for a long long time. If you wanna know numbers, then there would be the goal of walking more than 500m or maybe one day even a kilometer long Slackline.
I have had many great days in my almost 10 year long slackline career, but if I have to pick some outstanding ones, it will be the first 1000ft+ Longline on Polyester, a Worldrecord back in 2011 or the Luke Skywalker Highline trick I could land in 2013.
In terms of expeditions there is the Altitude Record in Peru with a Highline above 5220m and the almost 100m long Highline across the Victoria Falls which I could realize in 2014. In 2015 I could push my Highline record to almost 190m length, which was a great achievement walking this Line on polyester.
Highlining for me is a lot about orientation and the difficulties of the individual spots. Every place is unique and sometimes just getting to the places where I wand to set up my Line is a challenge in itself – It is an adventure.
Slacklining is some kind of moving meditation, where you enter your own small world and try to stay in this narrow little tunnel, where you need to control all your emotions and thoughts and really focus on the now.
This is what I love about it – reducing all the important things in life to just a one inch line is really feeding up your mind like nothing else.
I try to get in the mountains with my friends whenever it is possible, but if the weather is not good enough, we stay in a little valley close to my hometown or I simply rig my Lines across the meadows right next to my home to walk and play.
I think for me it all comes down to giving 100% every time I get on the Line. You always need to practice something new, get yourself a new stimulus and try to go beyond all what you have tried before – every day.
I rarely compete these days, at least not in competitions, but only against myself – thought this can be tougher than every competition I ever had – if you have a bad day :D
HAHA! My biggest fan… Maybe my little brother.
Finishing my master´s degree in economics and continuing my profession as a Slackliner for as long as possible.
For climbers and hikers, the dream of paragliding, the height differences without any effort back down from the peak to the valley, we offer a real highlight.
The Mountaineering flight is with a Tandem pilot from the summit to the valley – Alpine paragliding.
We have prepared a number of tours in the best paragliding areas of the Alps for you.
-Common climbing mountains of 900 – 2000 m above sea level.
-The flight equipment for the tandem flight.
-The return trip will be organized
-Tandem flight from the summit along with the tandem pilot
-Our pilots know their stuff about photos and/or videos and keep for you the most beautiful moments – memories for a long time!
-View photos or videos of your flight and the entire hike.
-Good physical condition (the passenger has to carry about 12 kg)
-A day time
Our mountaineering flights are only weekdays from Monday to Friday! Primarily in the months of August-early November, because of the calmer air.
Mountaineering flights are operated only by appointment.
Flight time depending on the Flight Mountain
Total time 5-8 Hours
