Every new beginning starts with change. Currently there is a lot going on and much has been changing in the slackline world. Established Slackline companies are dying like flies, new records are broken almost every week, and of course we at One Inch Dreams have not been untouched by times of change either. You are wondering how the One Inch Dreamers continue?
August 17th and 18th the Federal Foreign Office of Germany in Berlin has open doors, an event the institution hosts annually. We are invited to perform a stunt between their very own buildings - a highline fixed at the flagpole of the German flag above the Foreign Minister Heiko Maas’ rooftop terrace. We will also screen our films “BuildingBridges” publicly for the first time – a special sneak preview for the attendants of the Open Day.
After months of preperation and countless problems we just managed to realize this symbolic project in Monument Valley, USA. It could only work out because so many individuals from US and Germany worked “Wunderbar together” towards a common goal - as the official claim of the “German Year in the USA” 2018/19 goes. More visuals & full story on the project site!
We had to put our whole hearts in realizing the longest (217 m) and at the same time highest (247 m) urban highline. Getting a permit and rigging the line was almost as demanding as the walk itself, which tested Alex limits and for which he needed all his experiences.
650 meters long & 200 meters high – a storm blowing hard at 100 km/h impeded Alex from crossing the longest nylon slackline in the French Auvergne at first. However, we weren't disheartened and came back with more time available.
As a part of the festivities regarding the 25th anniversary of Ötzi (5300 year old mummy found on the glacier above the lake) Alex was invited to send a 535 m long waterline over the beautiful Vernagt lake in Val Senales (italy) that changes colours all the times.
Our Teammember Alexander Schulz has once again set a new world record in slacklining. The 23-year-old walked a 610 meter long slackline, which had been rigged between two dunes in Inner Mongolia. He now holds the three most important world records in slacklining.
The project could only be successful with perfect teamwork, lots of digging was involved!
During his first slackline trip to China Alex managed to walk a 375 m long highline and thus broke the old world record by more than 70 m.
Find all photos, the trailer and ALex report on the project page.
On August 14th 2014 Alex sent a 271 m long slackline over the harbor basin of the North Sea island of Helgoland and thus gained back the world record in waterlining.
The walk was the climax of the "Mission:HD for Helgoland" (promotion tour from german company HD+).
From August 15th to 17th 2014 the famous slackline festival in the LIVINGROOM Hochkönig will happen a third time - As every year organised by One Inch Dreams!
After countless days of planning we could finally realize a very special project on July 17th 2014:
A highline between two cable cars at Zugspitze 2800 m above sea level. Walking between swinging objects 150 m over the glacier was a unique experience for Alexander Schulz and Niklas Winter.
As the grand finale of the "night of the sport" in Ingolstadt on 3rd May Alex and Mirko gave a highline show. Get an impression of it by watching the pictures.
Alex was stuntman for the fake check of the Volvo ballerina stunt, in which Faith Dickey balanced over a rope rigged between 2 moving trucks. The goal was finding out if Volvos advertisement could be real.
The longest polyester slackline of the world. A Bavarian field full of sheep, good friends and beautiful weather were the ingredients for this undertaking.
Beginning of october 2012 we rigged a highline for the ski professional Felix Neureuther at the highest point of germany (summit of "Zugspitze").
This was also for us an unforgettable experience...
From september 7th to 9th 2012 we will organize the 1. Slackline Festival at mount Hochkönig during which Alex will try to break the Polyester highline world record!
Alex once again broke the highline world record together with Jerry Miszewski!
The 390 feet (119 meters) long highline was rigged in Consumnes River Gorge, California.
What happens when highliners have to much time?
The result: A new, creative, never been there before possibilty to fix a highline!
The plane took off on 14th November, 2011.
Alex, together with Lukas Irmler and Christian Krr, is going to rig highlines at many beautiful spots in the country of origin of slacklining, trying to break his current highline record of 115 meters.
