Johannes was born in the south of Munich in 1993. Very much to be regretted by his mother he started slacklining and highlining at the early age of 12. From this point on he was looking for the most spectacular and unique locations worldwide to push slacklining to new levels and show off that creativity and impossibility are exact the needed requirements for the development of this young and crazy sport.
In 2014 Johannes started working as a director for commercials and outdoor documentaries. His passion for finding special places is still one of his biggest talents and the groundation of his work. He believes in the idea that an inch wide webbing tensioned across rusty war theatres, living volcanos or the highest mountain peaks transforms the place itself in something lively and that slacklining is the best platform to reach the audience of a brands campaign.
Projects I've been involved with:
Rigging the longest (217 m) and at the same time highest (247 m) urban highline 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.
Aerial stunt with airplane pilot Kirby Chambliss and highliner Alexander Schulz on a 250 m long highline 300 meters above the sea at "Tetakawi" in Sonora, Mexico.
Epic slackline adventure on defense towers from World War II in the North Sea.
Only as a team and with lots of digging could the longest slackline of the world be realized successfully in a chinese desert.
Looking for an aesthetic urban highline we ended up in the most ugly European city. As so often Johannes was the one to keep us going. Without him this project would have never been realized.
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.
By walking the entire 327 m long slackline over water Alex improved the record in waterlining once more.
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.
A highline between two cable cars at Zugspitze 2800 m above sea level. Walking between swinging cable cars 150 m over the glacier was a unique experience for Alexander Schulz and Niklas Winter.
