When did you start slacklining?
I started in 2011
What kept you hooked?
I started with my friends William Fuenmayor and Diego Barrera, and they kept me interested and taught me every trick I know. Then I started a slackline club at my college in puerto la cruz, and seeing everyone learning was really inspiring.
What is your proudest accomplishment in slacklining?
I am most proud of all the people I’ve taught slacklining. One of my favorite things is seeing the curiosity and joy in peoples’ faces when they see slacklining for the first time. I have spread slacklining to a lot of new places in Venzuela which I am proud of as well.
What’s your favorite place to slackline In Venezuela?
In Maracay we slackline in a park called Las Ballenas, which is one of my favorite spots when I’m home. But one of my other favorite places to slackline is in Puerto la Cruz and it’s on a beach called Paseo Colón. I love this spot because it has a beautiful view of the ocean and the sand is nice and forgiving for learning new tricks.
What’s a normal slackline day for you?
I always try to slackline with my friends because it just makes the session so much better, so I usually go out with my girlfriend or my trickliner friends when I have a session. I am always searching for new spots so on a normal day I will try to session at a new spot.
What is your favorite trick?
Feet to feet Front Flip for sure, and I also love the Butt Backflip to feet. Oh, and the backside 540. I love a lot of tricks (laughs).
Who inspires you?
Man that’s a hard question because a lot of people inspire me. I love seeing videos of international slackliners together because it gives me hope to someday slackline with all of them. To name a few: Josh Beaudoin, Heather Larsen, Andy Lewis, and basically every trickliner who’s videos I’ve seen!
