A green apple

What quality do you admire most in other people ?

Didn’t fix myself while rigging.

Every highliner should know some rules about safety and protecting of nature.

The last highline of our Iceland trip. Heavy wind, beautiful scenery, birds flying around…

What goals would you like to achieve this year ?

100m highline would be nice. And to learn some new longline tricks. And try them on a highline.

Do you like chocolate ?
