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.

Slackline world record
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+).
The longest polyester slackline of the world. A Bavarian field full of sheep, good friends and beautiful weather were the ingredients for this undertaking.
