When did you start slacklining?
April of 2013.
What kept you interested?
At first it was slacklining with my friends Carlos, Zeph, and Luke Then I had the option to start competing and got self-motivated enough to train by myself, which is nice because now I have the option to train by myself or have a session with all of those guys.
Santa Monica is clearly a special place for slacklining, why do you think so many good trickliners have come out of there??
Well clearly it’s a great open space for people to learn new tricks. But the biggest part of it was just having motivated people around you to push you to try new things like doubles and 900’s. It’s cool to go back there now and see people pushing each other just like Carlos, Zeph and I did when we were starting.
What is your proudest accomplishment in slacklining?
I try not to think about my proudest accomplishments and instead think about how I can continue improving. But I am proud of all the places slacklining has taken me: Toronto, Sarajevo, Abu Dhabi, and Barcelona to name a few.
What’s your style like and what are your favorite tricks to do?
I like to combo until I am content, which is usually a really long time. My favorite tricks are probably the 900 and Double Fearless just because of the satisfaction of landing such a big trick. I like that I have a raw, powerful style. People ask me how I get so much amplitude but really I’m just doing the tricks without thinking about amplitude at all!
What’s an average training session like?
I usually start with a progressive warm up and then start going through my easy combos, then move on to doubles and 900’s, and then go from there!
