Personal message

"Hope to slackline with you soon at a slackline meeting!"


You can easily recognize him by his aggressive, but controlled slackline style. You can regonize him by his quick twists, surfs (one leg) and bounces. All his tricks are always peformed with a huge smile on his face. Next to that he also loves to dance and feel the flow on the Slackline. He can be a real crowd entertainer!
