What is it like walking a HUGE highline? 12 interviews with the Sweden Lapporten 2.1KM team


Walking a giant highline is very very different than a highline 300 meters or less. Here are 12 different perspectives from people who cruise across it, to people who only stood up and walked a short distance.


Sky Diamond from Spider Slacklines and Slack Inov was the webbing on this highline. They have some of the best gear on the market for slacklining. https://spider-slacklines.com/shop/en...


We also interviewed the team at the last world record in Asbestos, Quebec, Canada. https://youtu.be/e4zcUdelz4Q


This was the first slackline project to be sponsored through crowdfunding. We made soft shackles with the dyneema tag line as a gift to them and you can see more about that at https://youtu.be/BWA3BTmkLiE

Behind the Scenes

It was always a mystery to me what the experience was to walk such a big line before I got the chance to stand on one and witness people doing it in real life. I think this type of video can really inspire new highliners stoked on the hope they will get a chance to do this someday.


After Posting Thoughts

This is one of my lowest viewed videos in a long time, but it really puts a nice bow on the sweden project that we invested a lot of time and energy into.


The real gold is seeing the actual project in this video

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
