The 34 year old slackliner from Zurich, Switzerland started Slacklining in 2004 to stabilize his knee after an injury of his crutiate ligament. Not only did he recover extremely fast from his injury, but he started loving that sport and soon after founded SLACKTIVITY together with Tobias Rodenkirch. In the following years he concentrated on Jumplining and became Swiss Champion in Tricklining in 2013. From that moment on he started to highline more and more as he discovered the freestyle potential of that sport, and started pushing the boundaries. He broke the world record of highlining several times - in 2018 he walked a 1900m long highline without falling. Beside that, he was the first person to manage the handstand on a highline and keeps impressing the slackline world with spectacular trick-combos. He walks all his highlines secured.
Current Highline World Record Holder
Sam already did countless highline-shows in Switzerland but also in other countries in Europe. His favourite length to do shows is between 40m and 100m. But he is open for any highline up to 3km length. Contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to book him for a show.
Sam was the first highliner to do shoulder stands and handstands on highlines and is still inventing a lot of new tricks. His show-program - mixed up with music and dance-elements - is versatile and amazes every crowd.
