Extreme Highlining - Insane Heights

Posted on the 28 August 2013 by Gerard @presurfer
Highlining or Slacklining is a practice in balance that typically uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points. Highlining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line is not held rigidly taut (although it is still under some tension); it is instead dynamic, stretching and bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline.
Devin Supertramp and these extreme highliners make it look so simple. Just watching these guys cross such high routes and long distances.
