I was born 1995 in Salzkammergut. Sport and nature have always been a permanent feature of my life.
Most of my childhood I spent skiing, hiking and climbing in the mountains.
2012 was the first time I got on a slackline and found my liking pretty fast for it and tried static tricks like the split.
In 2013 being on my first highline , I was confronted with two things.
First, an so far unknow fear of height and second, the lack of power over my body.
Somehow I still managed to stand up and fight my way across the highline.
Today, highlining means way more to me than just fear and overcoming. It is an unique mixture of relaxation and concentration. You are fully with yourself, forget the rest of the world and just think about your next step.
Reaching your boundaries is something usual, but that is exactly the point where I like to fight and struggle. That's how I widen them step by step.
Through highlining I learned to see many things different: Failures do not steal my motivation, taking a step back can give a new light to a situation as well as living in the here and now, not thinking about the past or future.
