When did you start slacklining?
10 years ago
Wow, what was it like back then? Were there any trickliners?
It was basically only Andy Lewis when I started, so he was my biggest inspiration for sure. It was definitely a small slackline scene but I also had some friends to train with in Chile including my friend Jose Pablo.
What has kept you interested in slacklining?
It had to do with the feeling I had on the line, which I just loved. It focuses my mind and my objectives for life. It felt good to learn at first, especially after my first few successes because I had really proved to myself that I could do something challenging.
What was your favorite slackline trip?
For me, I love every slackline trip I go on. But one of my personal favorites was traveling to Venezuela just because it was my first time out of Chile. I felt like I had proved to myself that slacklining could really take me places.
What is your proudest accomplishment in slacklining?
I took part in the world cup in Munich Germany, but also one of my proudest accomplishments is teaching workshops across Chile. Right now I use slacklining as a team building exercise for companies.
How do you use slacklining to fix company problems?
When there are some internal issues in a company, often with motivation or something similar, my team will go in and use slacklining, balance board, and some other tools to bring some life back to the workplace, and also use slacklining as a metaphor for what needs to happen in the workplace in terms of balance.
What is your style?
I love using the entire line’s length; I love jumping feet to feet with grabs, flips and everything as stylish as possible.
What are you working on now?
Now I am working on some film projects that are focusing on some urban highlines and rodeo lines in some really unique spots in Santiago.
