My first highline

Recommended Posts

Mikkel Ravn

Hi guys

 

Not really gymnastics related, but nevertheless I'd like to share a cool experience with you.

 

Two friends and I rigged a highline between two trees today - What can I say, there's no rocks in Denmark. Next step would be urban highlining. It was still high enough, that I got scared out of my wits, though. Took a couple tries, but eventually I walked all of the line, which was a great feeling.

 

Anyway, enjoy!

That was awesome! The prolonged hesitation, the numerous initial close calls, the suspense, and the dramatic final outcome (won't spoil it for the rest). I just wished you kept filming at the end so that we could see your GST skills in action.

Thanks! I did a nice pullover to get back on the line. Big shoutout to Coach! Also attempted an elbow lever, but it looked more like the worm  :P

 

Btw, are the pics accessible?

Congratulations!

 

Did all of your single leg squat training help with your balance? It seemed that way.

I enjoy being up in trees.

Don't know really, probably didn't help with balance, but should make the knee more stable for mounts and tricks. I'm slowly working on the pistol mount, which is basically using a SLS to stand up on the line.
